The Art of Digital Stewardship: Content, Context, and Structure

The culminating event for the National Digital Stewardship Residency for Art Information (NDSR Art), the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) will host The Art of Digital Stewardship: Content, Context, and Structure. During this symposium, NDSR Art residents from MICA's Decker Library, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, and Small Data Industries will present possible solutions for the acquisition, preservation, and access of digital art and art information, from preserving born-digital documentation of the museum experience to working with at-risk artists' archives. 

Additionally, this one-day symposium will bring together digital archivists, digital curators, librarians, content creators, and artists to discuss digital art stewardship and focus on questions such as: 

How are we conceptualizing the artistic process as information or as a record? How can we support artists' engagement with the archival record? And, conversely, how can we support artists' archival impulses?

Featured speakers include:

  • Caroline Gil Rodríguez, media art conservator, archivist, and writer
  • Ayodamola Tanimowo Okunseinde (ayo), artist, designer, and educator
  • Jasmyn R. Castro, audiovisual archivist and creator of the African American Home Movie Index
  • Bárbara Calderón, art consultant, artist, culture worker, and arts librarian
  • NDSR Art residents from MICA's Decker Library, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, and Small Data Industries 

The Art of Digital Stewardship: Content, Context, and Structure is free (with option to pre-order lunch at cost), open to the public, and is sponsored by the Maryland Institute College of Art and the National Digital Stewardship Residency for Art Information.
