November 21-23

Registration is now open for A Collection of Misfits: Time-Based
Media and the Museum

Presented by Carnegie Museum of Art, "A Collection of Misfits:
Time-Based Media and the Museum" is a two-day symposium designed to
encourage discourse about the practical and philosophical issues of
building, maintaining, exhibiting, and preserving time-based media
art collections. Bringing together professionals from all points
along the media continuum-artists, archivists, curators,
conservators, academics, and media archaeologists-this symposium
addresses the opportunities and challenges of working with
time-based media. From well-established museums to independent
projects, from physical galleries to digital spaces, the symposium
seeks out the sites where time-based media resides, with an eye
toward innovative approaches in traditional and non-traditional
venues alike.

The Misfits symposium is supported by a grant from the A.W. Mellon
Foundation. To register and for more information, including a
preliminary program, please visit
