Art in America: Forrest Nash On The Importance Of Documentation And Accessibility In Digital Archiving

New-to-me, from Art in America: Forrest Nash On The Importance Of Documentation And Accessibility In Digital Archiving. “Our nonprofit organization has been publishing Contemporary Art Daily online since 2008. Over the last few years, we often heard that people were using the search function on the website as a research tool, but it was never intended for that kind of use. We created Contemporary Art Library to address this need. Anyone looking to learn more about artists can search Contemporary Art Library and find thorough documentation of their projects that isn’t mediated by the market or promoting a critical agenda. As far as we know, we are the first major archive of this kind and the largest public database of documentation of contemporary art.”
