Curating the Digital

Public session „Curating the Digital“ by Wade Wallerstein, digital anthropologist, co-director at Transfer Gallery, founder of Silicon Valet.

 

Every day, an average of 1.8 billion images is uploaded to the Internet. In our digital age, one defined by a webspace inundated by visual content, curation is a vital and necessary creative task to match the quantity and velocity of modern visual outputs. Not only must individuals curate themselves to participate in this digital culture of sharing, but fine art curators must adopt digital techniques to contend with new art forms within their native material contexts. As algorithmic processes of selection increasingly define our experiences in virtual environments, human-led curation emerges as an important counterpoint to machine vision.

✅ In the context of an art world that is adjusting to new forms of sharing, selling, and displaying art, Wade Wallerstein will discuss how digital curation techniques can be used to create deeper meaning out of the noise
