Google Hangouts: Live Video Chatting between Museums & Online Communities

Google Hangouts: Live Video Chatting between Museums & Online Communities | Heritage and Museology  -  Patrimoni i Museologia | Scoop.it

"In the past several months, many museums have begun using live video chat as a way to enhance and foster new online discussions and interactions between museum educators and the public. One of the most popular tools has been Google Hangouts which is part of the Google+ social network. It allows for up to 10 users to video chat together and gives them the ability to broadcast the video stream live to a large audience and even record the session for future viewing. The recorded video, which is archived on the museum’s G+ page and YouTube channel, can be shared on various social networks. In addition, the videos collect (limited) analytics information so museums can track the attention it receives. Users who express interest in a museum video session ahead of time can be alerted when it is about to begin via Google+ email messaging."

"Explosion! The Legacy of Jackson Pollock" opens at The Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona

"Explosion! The Legacy of Jackson Pollock" opens at The Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona | Heritage and Museology  -  Patrimoni i Museologia | Scoop.it

"BARCELONA.- The Fundació Joan Miró presents Explosion! The Legacy of jackson pollock, an exhibition curated by Magnus af Petersens and organised in conjunction with the Moderna Museet, Stockholm. After the Second World War, many artists wanted to start from scratch by attacking painting, which was seen to represent artistic conventionality. Explosion! takes off where modernism ends; when it was so ripe that it was on the verge of exploding. Which it did, in the form of a variety of new ways of making art. Practically every door was opened with an aggressive kick, and a new generation of artists began seeing themselves not as painters or sculptors but simply as artists, who regarded all material and subjects as potential art. That is how the North American artist and writer Allan Kaprow, the man who invented the word “happening”, described the situation in 1956 in his now legendary essay “The Legacy of jackson pollock”. Even if doors were opened to all techniques, much of the new art - happenings, performance and conceptualism – sprang from new approaches to painting. There was a development, a shift of focus, from painting as an art object and as representation, to the process behind the work, to the ideas that generate art, and performative aspects."
