Many visual art institutions are delving into mobile technology as a new means of distributing their content. This lecture will cover highlights, anecdotes and fact and figures gathered during a researcher’s visits to several European and American mobile-friendly institutions and interviews with the professionals who created their respective mobile projects.
Ashley Paulisick completed her master’s degree in Art Business at Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London in 2011. Research for her dissertation, titled “The Impact of Mobile Technology on Art Institution Visitor Experiences,” took her to some of the world’s most prestigious art institutions, including Tate Modern and Pittsburgh’s own Andy Warhol Museum. Her interest in art and technology developed over years of using web-based resources to market her own artwork. She has applied these same skills to marketing and outreach efforts for nonprofits as small as the Louisville Visual Art Association to as internationally renowned as The Courtauld Gallery in London.
Now living in Pittsburgh, she has set up her art studio in Homestead and paints under the “pen” name Ashley Cecil. When not in front of an easel, she works with charities focused on the intersection of art and community services. You can read about and see her work at www.ashleycecil.com and find her ramblings on Twitter at @ashleycecil.
