New technologies, such as televisions, videos, DVDs and MP3s, are used by many artists in multimedia installations, but they are among the greatest challenges in the field of conservation. Dr. Glenn Wharton, media conservator at MoMA and research scholar at New York University’s Conservation Center and museum studies programs, will discuss how MoMA’s conservation program for time-based media is on the cutting edge of new research in the field.
This program is organized by the Lunder Conservation Center, and takes place in the museum's Nan Tucker McEvoy Auditorium.
