This public discussion is the first in a two-part series exploring the creative use of archives and exhibition data of public cultural institutions. Moderated by data artist Jer Thorp, this discussion features Mario Klingemann, expert coder and artist; and Emily Spivack, writer and founder of Threaded, Smithsonian's historical fashion blog.

Part II of Archives as Instigator is a hands-on workshop to be held on July 12 at MoMA. Registration for this workshop is separate and space is very limited.

This program is organized in collaboration with The Office for Creative Research through Artists Experiment.

Tickets ($15; $10 members and corporate members; $5 students, seniors, and staff of other museums) can be purchased online or at the information desk, the Film desk, and on the day of the program after 11:30 a.m.

If you would like to attend the July 12 workshop, you must purchase a combo ticket for both the July 7 program and the July 12 workshop at once here.
