Patterns of Collecting: InfoVis for Art History - Christian Huemer, Managing Editor, The Getty Provenance Index®, Getty Research Institute

Moderator: Jennifer Tobias, Reader Services Librarian, The Museum of Modern Art

Data visualization, as part of the broader field of digital humanities, has allowed museum curators, collection managers, and scholars to algorithmically analyze art information in novel, dynamic ways. Shifting palettes, spatial density, and other material aspects of works can now be examined digitally and can provide new insights into creativity, form, genre, and evolution. Cultural heritage professionals are also beginning to use visualizations and computational tools to expand the availability and explorability of their collections. This session will provide an overview of the field of information visualization and will examine how data visualization and its related technologies are increasingly mediating formal humanities research and the study of collections. Additionally, the session will discuss how new tools and methods of visualizing data are empowering patron use of digital and digitized art and artist collections.
