Workshopping Asia Art Archive’s Digital Collection
Wednesday, September 12, 6:30-7:30pm
Asia Art Archive in America
43 Remsen Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201
Developed over the last 18 years in partnership with artists and art professionals, Asia Art Archive’s Research Collection has become a rich repository of primary source material, photographic documentation, video recordings, ephemera, and more. Much of this collection has now been digitized, making these valuable resources accessible for users worldwide.
Please join an informal workshop about how to use AAA’s digital collection, organized by Asia Art Archive in America’s Hilary Chassé and Cici Wu. This workshop will begin with an overview of the collection and the content priorities that inform its development and continue with a discussion of how to access and make use of the digitized resources on site at the Brooklyn Heights reading room. The scope of the collection of secondary materials available at AAA in A will also be highlighted. Light refreshments will be served.
Asia Art Archive in America (AAA in A) is an independently established and operated nonprofit and the first overseas mini hub of Asia Art Archive (AAA) in Hong Kong. AAA’s mission is to collect, preserve and make information on contemporary art from and of Asia easily accessible in order to facilitate understanding, research and writing in the field. AAA in A strives to be pro-active in instigating dialogue and critical thinking through a series of regular educational programs, and hopes to raise awareness of and support for the activities of Asia Art Archive in Hong Kong.
