Conversations: Digital Museums and Virtual Audiences
On Friday the 8th of December, the morning starts at 10 am with a very interesting conversation titled Digital Museums and Virtual Audiences. András Szantó, an author and cultural strategy consultant based in New York, will be moderating four key figures in the adoption of digital innovation in art institutions. Alberto Ibargüen – President and CEO of John S. and James L. Knight Foundation (Miami) –, Shannon Darrough – Director of Digital Media at The Museum of Modern Art (New York) –, Rachel Rossin – New York-based artist –, and Joel Kremmer – Director of the Kremer Collection and Co-Founder of the Kremer Museum (Amsterdam) will discuss how interactive gallery displays, social media platforms, searchable databases and virtual reality apps are re-shaping artistic and cultural landmarks. The digital era has been with us for some time now and will keep increasing at an unstoppable pace. In this panel, the four experts will discuss how museums, galleries and artists can embrace the change to engage with audiences both online and offline.
