Exploring New Models of Curatorial Scholarship

College Art Association Annual Conference | New York, NY

Session Location & Time
Wednesday, February 11, 2015; 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM; Sutton Parlor South, 2nd, Floor, Hilton Hotel, New York City

Session Description

The myth of the lone genius breaking new ground resonates in the art world not only around the artist but also in the realm of curatorial practice. In fact, curators, like artists, have long enjoyed collaborative relationships with others who help facilitate their work or who are active partners in it, such as other curators, conservators, academics, educators, collectors, designers and gallerists. Today, a new generation of curators, the so-called digital natives, are bringing new practices of scholarship to the field.  Art historical research using new technologies, such as mapping techniques and data mining, offer rich possibilities for modeling current curatorial scholarship (Jules Prown’s use of the IBM punch card to mine data about Copley’s colonial American sitters in the 1950s stands out as a pioneering early example). The session panelists will examine old and new approaches to curatorial scholarship, including but not limited to the use of newer technologies and scientific methods, and the potential impact of these practices on the very nature and purpose of the art museum.
