Museum Momentum: Digital Exhibitions and Curatorial Experiments

The pandemic world accelerated digitalization, reviving museums and cultural institutions. Museums and institutions have used a variety of strategies to adapt and migrate into the digital world, including using previously digitised resources, improving social media presence, software, and curating new online exhibitions as an educational tool for the audience. In this webinar, we are going to talk about the role of digital exhibitions in museums. Bhanu Ghalot will also take us through the new immersive exhibition “Un.Divided Identities: Lesser-known stories of the Partition” and address the role of cultural exchange, oral histories, and curation through a critical lens in contemporary times.

To know more about the Museum’s momentum in digital exhibitions and curatorial experiments, do register for the talk.
