Technological innovations, past and present, have influenced the kinds of materials and processes that artists use in making art, as well as the methods museum professionals use to conserve and exhibit them. Hear from conservators, preparators, curators and educators on how technology has impacted the materials, making, care and display of art. Individual session topics include: an in-depth look at a rare, complete set of tapestries in the museum’s collection, and their recent conservation; how technology helps visitors experience and understand objects from the museum’s collection of Chinese art; the interesting sources of color in works of art ranging from painting to ceramics; changing technologies of image reproduction from printmaking to photography; and the use of new and unexpected materials in contemporary art.
