Clark Art Institute Launches Curatorial Contest on January 18

In February 2012 the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute unveiled a new exhibition, Clark Remix. Featuring some 400 objects from their collection in a salon-style presentation, the exhibition is supplemented with two innovative computer applications that encourage visitors to consider both the collection and the curator’s role in a new light. Clark has created a special website, clarkart.edu/remix, for visitors to explore.

One of the applications, uExplore, provides detailed information on every work in the Remix exhibition, allowing visitors to take advantage of rich multimedia offerings presented through handheld computer tablets. The other application, uCurate, invites visitors to become curators of their own virtual exhibitions by researching and creating an installation utilizing the works featured in the Remix exhibition. The Clark Art Institute invites visitors to explore the application and their collection at http://remix.apps.clarkart.edu/#uCurate.

Clark is transforming three of these virtual concepts into actual exhibitions that will be displayed in its galleries. The first, Giselle’s Remix, is on view now through January 20; and the second exhibition from February 2 through March 10. On January 18, the Clark will launch ”Race to the Remix,” a 48-hour curatorial contest from which one winner’s exhibition will be chosen for display in March. Details about the competition are at clarkart.edu/race.
