Time-Based Media Workshop: Installation and Exhibition

Midwest Media Arts Consortium

Art Institute of Chicago

111 South Michigan Avenue

Chicago, IL 60603

Tuesday, April 23, 2019

9:00 am - 4:30 pm

On Tuesday, April 23, 2019, the Art Institute of Chicago will host a
one-day workshop on technical considerations in exhibiting time-based media
works. The morning session will address digital projection and media player
choices in exhibition planning, and the afternoon will focus on
considerations for installing audio in gallery spaces.

On view at the museum will be the exhibition Gregg Bordowitz: I Wanna Be
Well, a retrospective of the artist’s multidisciplinary practice, including
video and performance, which will be discussed as a case study for part of
the day. The symposium will provide participants with current technical
information, and a greater knowledge and richer vocabulary for selecting
and evaluating technical display decisions.

This event is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and hosted
through the Time-Based Media Initiative at the Art Institute. It is
co-organized jointly by the museum’s departments of Academic Engagement and
Research, Conservation and Science, Modern and Contemporary Art, and
Photography.

For questions, contact Kristin MacDonough ([log in to unmask]), Grainger
Fellow in Time-Based Media Conservation.

Please note: The workshop will take place in different parts of the museum
and require walking or standing for parts of the day. Please email Kristin
if you require additional accommodations.

Registration is limited and will close on Monday, April 8th. Register here
