Museums at the ‘Post-Digital’ Turn (3-4 Nov, OGR) is the first symposium conceived by AMACI in the framework of Museum Twenty-One, a brand new research platform. Curated by Lorenzo Giusti and Nicola Ricciardi, it will encompass lectures by Claire Bishop, Cécile B.Evans, Lauren Cornell, Liam Gillick, Boris Groys, Christiane Paul and Domenico Quaranta. The symposium will feature a scientific section coordinated by Gail Cochrane and Pier Paolo Peruccio (Polito), with experts from international universities. The speakers will convene to consider these central questions:
What does the future hold in store for the museum? What role may the museum as an institution play in the physical space of the web? What changes are taking place in curatorial practices, display strategies, collecting and conservation policies, mediation techniques and teaching systems? How has the relationship with the public changed, and how much will it continue to change over the years to come? What results is it fair to expect from a system of viewing and ratification which is ever more ‘externalised’?
During the talk at Artissima Giusti and Ricciardi will sum up the 2-days symposium.
Speakers: Lorenzo Giusti (director Museo MAN di Nuoro and Membro del Consiglio Direttivo AMACI) and Nicola Ricciardi (artistic director, OGR Torino) in conversation with Alessandro Martini (Museums editor, Il Giornale dell’Arte)
