Museums & Instagram
Part of Vital Signs
Social media have become tools for museums to advertise their programs and collections, pass on general information about the institution and, most importantly, engage in a more direct dialogue with their audiences. This podcast explores the ways in which visitors and curators use Instagram in this context. It also questions the limitations of such platforms in museums through interviews with curators Brooke Hodge and Hallie Ringle, as well as with visitors to the MoMA.
