C + Roman Steps : Making Art & Art History on Vine
A art story where online collections, museum programs, social media, digital scholarly publishing, art history and exhibitions collide.
- Backstory: For the exhibition 0 to 60: The Experience of Time through Contemporary Art, the NCMA is experimenting with Vine, and asking everyone to join in. Vine is quick, easy, available, and most importantly, meshes perfectly with the exhibition theme. Because of the 6-second time limit, you can't create a vine without being mindful of time. Time is sliced, stretched, lapsed, lost and repeated endlessly on Vine--in visual, creative, often artful ways.In thinking about the project, I was struck by how many of my favorite artists made work dealing with time. Robert Rauschenberg came to mind first, and so began a story that adds a new dimension to the project:
