Technological Revolutions and Art History Part III: Alonzo C. Addison

January 14, 2021

Presentations in Part III of the symposium explore the ethics of digitization and how issues regarding access and discoverability impact research in art history. Speakers critically examine how technologies, from 3D modelling to artificial intelligence, have the potential to expand audience engagement with cultural heritage institutions and their collections yet also, ironically, limit understanding and community connection by omitting context, introducing bias and legal restrictions, and problematizing concepts of ownership and authenticity.
