Dear MCNers,

I thought that this might interest you:

CURATING ART AFTER NEW MEDIA - PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COURSE  
http://www.macurating.net/shortcourse.htm 

24 February to 2 March 2019, Central London

*I would recommend it to anyone who wants to expand their network and broaden 
their understanding of how curators do what they do.* 
Course participant from USA

In 2019 this course will run for the 6th year. Past course attendees have 
included curators and researchers from Hong Kong, Bahrain, India, USA, Canada, 
Austria, The Netherlands, Greece, Ireland, France and the UK. 

This intensive week-long course in London is aimed at curators, exhibition 
organisers, educators and others working with contemporary art. The course will 
critically examine how contemporary curating can best match contemporary art 
practices, including practices that might be collaborative, or participatory. 
Since new media including social networking and open source have changed 
thinking on how art works in time and space, this course aims to update 
professional knowledge in the field. 

Visits to discuss with curators at organisations will include:
TATE
VICTORIA & ALBERT MUSEUM
INIVA
and previous years have also included:
THE PHOTOGRAPHERS GALLERY
ODI (OPEN DATA INSTITUTE)
FURTHERFIELD
TENDERPIXEL
MACHINES ROOM
WELLCOME COLLECTION

Some participants have received Professsional Development grants from their 
local arts councils or PhD funders to attend this course

[MCN-L] event reminder: ResearchSpace at the British Museum @ SFMOMA

2018-10-03 Thread Layna White
We're happily anticipating this Northern California event, and hope you can 
join us:

Can the 'Curatorial' extend to the Digital Space?
Friday October 5, 2018
3:00 - 5:00 pm @ SFMOMA *

The relationship between art and the world is usually experienced and 
interpreted in person within the physical walls of a gallery, the curatorial 
movement has sought to extend the physical boundaries and include associated 
community orientated activities. Can this extension be applied to the Digital, 
and what form should it take?

Please join us at SFMOMA for a presentation and discussion of ResearchSpace led 
by Dominic Oldman and Diana Tanase of the British Museum.

Dominic and Diana will discuss their work to develop ResearchSpace as a new 
type of digital system, one concerned with presenting the knowledge systems of 
art creators, curators and those who interact with it to provide a digital 
curatorial experience capable of expressing human interpretations from 
different perspectives in a computer readable form that can be integrated into 
wider information infrastructures.

Check out a fuller description of their presentation here: 
http://bit.ly/2xh34iy.

ResearchSpace is a project supported by the Andrew W. Mellon foundation, with 
the objective of providing an interdisciplinary and long term knowledge based 
approach to digital systems. It uses Semantic Web technologies and an 
ontological framework as a basis for capturing epistemological activities.

Interested? 

Please drop a line to collecti...@sfmoma.org to let us know you're coming.

* The event will be in our Koret Education Center.  It's located on the second 
floor of the museum.  Enter via the museum's Third Street entrance.  Walk up 
the atrium stairs to the second floor.
