Nasher10 Homecoming to feature Lives of Things
October 4, 2015
UPDATE: Read a recap of the event.
The Wired! Lab’s Lives of Things, a project co-led by Caroline Bruzelius, Mark Olson, Guillermo Sapiro, and Mariano Tepper, will be featured as part of the Nasher Museum of Art’s Homecoming event Sunday, October 4th, from 12:00-4:00p.m. Over the summer, the Nasher’s permanent exhibition gallery was renovated to create a space better suited to sharing with the public the museum’s fine permanent collection. The Homecoming celebrates the reopening of the permanent exhibit and features projects such as the Lives of Things, which digitally augments the Nasher’s permanent collection to provide visitors with new ways to understand artifacts’ original context. The mobile application that will be featured with the permanent collection this academic year enables visitors to digitally recolor medieval statues as they may have been painted at the time of their creation.
The Lives of Things’ faculty and postdoctoral leaders will speak about the project as part of the premiere of the Nasher’s new speaking series, NED Talks (Nasher, Education, Duke). More information about the public event can be gathered from the Save the Date below.
