Unlocking the Vault

WED 18 APR, 6.30PM,

For centuries, the role of museums has been to digest complexity and express it as pattern - a linear hang in an art museum or a historical display following a singular set narrative.

However, the digital revolution is disrupting this model - a multi-directional, interconnected yet distributed network of information is challenging the role of the museum in the 21st century. 

Adam Moriarty, who will be speaking about this topic, is the Head of Information, Library and Enquiries at Auckland Museum, and he is working to redefine how we use the collections by providing unprecedented access. He is helping in opening up the collections, and allowing them to be constantly reshaped and reinterpreted by our audience.
