An Axisweb symposium, in partnership with the National Museum Wales and supported by the Arts Council of Wales.
This day-long symposium, for artists, curators and museum professionals, examines how artists can work with museum collections to both extend and enhance artists' practice and open collections up in new and interesting ways.
The day will look at interesting projects and the technologies being used to animate collections. It will also offer practical advice on collaborative working, brokering partnerships and sources of funding.
The event will include:
James Putnam, curator and writer, discussing shifts in the way that artists are working with museum collections and their role in activating engagement.
Andrew Renton, Head of Applied Art at the National Museum of Wales, in conversation with artist Sarah Younan about their collaboration and what artists can bring to the interpretation of collections.
Jon Monaghan, artist and animator, leading a workshop on 3d printing as a tool for creating user-generated content.
Artist Helen Snell, talking about collaboration and what it's like to work in the 'institution' of a museum.
Emma Price, independent art consultant, offering practical advice on developing projects that utilise museum collections.
This event is free to attend but places are limited so booking is essential
