Diversifying the Narrative through Digital Connections
The Philadelphia Museum of Art is exploring new ways of connecting art information across the museum and other cultural institutions to create a deeper, more diverse art historical narrative. We will discuss initiatives that make art information accessible and more meaningful using linked data, lessons learned, and what’s next. These projects include the Art Information Commons, establishing a virtual research platform that integrates and contextualises collection data from siloed platforms and departments; the Duchamp Research Portal, linking archival collections from the museum and French institutions; and a cross-institutional photogrammetry, and augmented and virtual reality project for cultural preservation and exhibition.
