As part of its leadership mission since its inception in 1981, ArtTable has presented public programs examining major developments and issues in the art world. For 2013, the organization has organized a series of panels and workshops that look at “The Digitization of the Art World”and its transformative impact on art practice, museum approaches to art interpretation and exhibition, and on traditional marketing structures. Artsy, creators of the Art Genome Project, will host a series of ArtTable’s “In Focus”workshops related to these panels throughout the year at which art world specialists and workshop attendeeswill participate in a conversation about specific areas in which digitization is generating fundamental rethinking and change in the art world.
