Washington, DC | Curator-Led Tour: Time-Based Media at the National Portrait Gallery

June 12 | 4:30 pm 5:30 pm

Expand your understanding and appreciation of time-based media on this special tour for the ArtTable community, led by Dr. Charlotte Ickes, Curator of Time-Based Media and Special Projects at the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution. As the pace of technological innovation continues to accelerate, so too will the quantity of art produced within this precisely defined, yet expansive category: time-based media, or art that reveals itself to the viewer or over time, encompasses film, audio, computer, and slide-based works. As the National Portrait Gallery and its peer institutions build their collections in time-based media, they are confronted with complex questions regarding the interpretation, installation, and conservation of these works, as well as the opportunity to define best practices for future generations of scholars. Dr. Ickes’ tour will cover highlights of the National Portrait Gallery’s acquisitions in time-based media, as well as explore how her Smithsonian colleagues have been grappling with these issues.
