Experts in the Galleries: Digital Archives

Special event, in English, Main Galleries, 15 September, 6pm

The Archaeology of the Digital research program is a multi-year effort to collect, archive, and present digital material, with the current exhibition Complexity and Convention as one result. Tim Walsh, Digital Archivist, and Irene Chin, Curatorial Intern, will discuss the CCA’s endeavours in building a repository of pioneering projects and providing tools for research. Through specific stories of the objects on display, the conversation will reveal how the Archaeology of the Digital project has informed the larger task of preserving, cataloguing, and providing access to digital files across the CCA collection, including archives acquired before and since the program was initiated.
