Held in collaboration with Serpentine Galleries, this seminar explores the different roles that the ‘digital’ holds within institutions. New and emerging digital technologies are having a transformational impact on the way we work, learn and engage. These require a set of new skills for curators, a hybrid between technical expertise and curatorial knowledge.

Throughout the day we will discuss the perceived immateriality of the medium and the support which we might need when collecting, displaying and archiving digital and technology-focused works. By looking at the ways in which different institutions manage digital projects, we hope to discuss the following: digital and tech literacy; the hybridity of technical and curatorial skills; and collaboration between departments. Speakers to be confirmed.

The format of the seminar will be a series of presentations followed by a roundtable discussion, so we strongly recommend participants to bring an example of a digital project that they have participated in, or been associated with, to discuss.
