Programmed: Conserving Concepts
Thursday, October 18, 2018

The Institute of Fine Arts, New York University
1 East 78th Street
Seating in the Lecture Hall is on a first-come, first-served basis with RSVP. Seating is limited. There will be a simulcast in an adjacent room to accommodate overflow.
The talk explores the challenges of preserving works for the Whitney Museum’s exhibition Programmed: Rules, Codes, and Choreographies in Art, 1965–2018, which establishes connections between instruction-based works of conceptual, video, and computational art. Ethical and practical matters involved in conserving and exhibiting analog and digital works will be discussed with a focus on maintaining the integrity of their concept and experience.
