Photographs and audio are now available from the February 26, 2015 event “Museums, Exhibitions, and Digital Media.” The event featured a lecture by John T. Carpenter, Curator of Japanese Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and was moderated by Haruo Shirane, Shincho Professor of Japanese Literature at Columbia University and faculty member of the Weatherhead East Asian Institute. The event, co-sponsored by the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures, is part of the Weatherhead East Asian Institute’s Museums & Material Culture: East Asia lecture series.
During the event Dr. Carpenter talked about the role of digital technology in exhibiting Japanese art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and discussed the vast digital resources available to scholars online through the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s website.
The Museums & Material Culture: East Asia lecture series aims to engage New York-based museums, galleries, and art institutions and their key players, experts, and artists in conversation about a variety of issues and topics, from museum anthropology to collecting and selling art. The final lecture in this series is on Tibetan material culture and will be held on Thursday, April 30, 2015.
