    Advanced Topics in Digital Art History: 3D and (Geo)Spatial Networks

    June 4-16, 2018 in Venice, Italy

    Digital Technologies for Historical and Cultural visualization are
    transforming the ways that scholars can study and represent works of art,
    as well as growth and change in urban spaces and structures.

    With the support of The Getty Foundation as part of its Digital Art History
    initiative, The Wired! Lab for Digital Art History & Visual Culture at Duke
    University, the University of Padua’?s Architecture and Engineering program
    and Venice International University are collaborating on a Summer Workshop
    that will support interdisciplinary teams focused on the hard questions of
    Digital Art History as a discipline, a set of methods, and a host of
    technical and institutional challenges and opportunities.

    After five editions of two-weeks summer workshops introducing concepts and
    methods for digital art and architectural history through hands-on
    tutorials and collaborative project development, the program for 2018 will
    shift to focus on advancing the field of digital art and architectural
    history through a combination of project-sharing, technology exploration,
    and academic discussion. After the initial two-week gathering in Venice, we
    still stay in touch as a community over the course of the next year,
    reconvening for one week in 2019 to write up and assess our work.

    This workshop is different than our earlier Visualizing Venice workshop
    iterations in that we are asking people to apply as teams of 2 or 3, and
    with a Digital Art History Mapping and/or Modeling project already in
    place, and which they hope to develop further in conversation with the
    group. The focus of applicant projects does not need to be on Venice or
    Visualizing Cities, though projects related to those themes are welcome. We
    will expect participants to share their working projects files with the
    group, and will work with selected participating teams in advance of the
    meeting to customize the curriculum to fit the needs and interests of the

    Alums of our previous introductory workshops are welcome to apply, as are
    new participants, from the US and abroad. Thanks to the generosity of the
    Getty Foundation, we are able to offer support for tuition, travel, board
    and accommodation expenses.

    Deadline: January 5, 2018
