Announcing the Visualizing Venice 2018 Summer Institute

September 20, 2017

The Wired! Lab and its Visualizing Venice collaborators are excited to announce a new Visualizing Venice Summer Institute: Advanced Topics in Digital Art History: 3D (Geo)Spatial Networks!

This Getty Foundation supported workshop will support interdisciplinary teams focused on the hard questions of Digital Art History as a discipline, a set of methods, and a host of technical and institutional challenges and opportunities.

Participants will gather from June 4-16, 2018 in Venice, Italy at Venice International University, with follow-up activities taking place over the course of the 2018-19 academic year, and leading into a follow-on gathering in Summer of 2019 that will operate as a writing and digital publication workshop, building upon work done over the course of the year by the project teams and in collaboration with our wider network.

We anticipate bringing together approximately 7-8 teams of 2-3 participants drawn from an international set of collaborators focused on scaling up an existing Digital Art History project, with special attention to projects focused on the intersection of mapping and modeling, and those thematized around Visualizing Cities.

Alumni/ae of our previous Visualizing Venice workshops are especially encouraged to apply.

Support for this Visualizing Venice program is provided by the Getty Foundation, as part of its Digital Art History initiative. Organizing partners include Venice International UniversityDuke University‘s Wired Lab for Digital Art History & Visual Culture, and the University of Padua‘s Architecture and Engineering program.
