The Public Is Present: Exhibition Websites at MoMA

A session at MCN 2012

Saturday 10th November, 2012

8:30am to 10:00am (PST)

MoMA.org is home to a growing archive of exhibition websites, each custom-designed for special exhibitions at the MoMA. As diverse as the exhibitions they represent, they are one of the most compelling aspects of the Museum's online presence.

Built through collaborations between the Digital Media department, outside consultants, and exhibition curators and artists, MoMA's exhibition websites contain a wealth of media—images, video, maps, and timelines. They often provide additional information and context that can't be accommodated in MoMA's galleries, and are available to a public who may not be able to see them in person.

Using past and current work as examples, we will discuss various strategies we use in the design, development, and management of exhibition websites. These will include: Talk to Me, Marina Abramović: The Artist Is Present, Take your time: Olafur Eliasson, F-111, Cindy Sherman_, _and more.
