This presentation is a meditation on the future evolution of the art museum curator. Koven J. Smith, principal at Kinetic Museums Consulting, will take a future-focused look at the curatorial role, re-framing it in terms of today’s technology. Curators are fantastic researchers, able to pull together multiple disparate threads of information into a coherent whole, but their training and output has not kept up with the changing marketplace of information. This talk will seek to address that situation by looking at the output of curatorial process and research from a linked open data/semantic web standpoint, and speculate on what changes that will bring to the museum sector as a whole.

Join Koven at World IA Day Greece (worldiaday.org/locations/hermoupolis-syros-greece/) on February 15th at the Apollon Theatre in Hermoupolis, Syros.
