The International Council of Museums (ICOM) will meet at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris from 4 to 6 June 2012 to review the past year and discuss future objectives for the international museum community.
29 May 2012 - Amit Sood, head of the Google Art Project, will address to the participants on 6 June and present the project’s concept in detail, describing the way in which museums can get involved, explaining the project’s strategic vision for the future, and more generally, offering a vision for the future of museums in a digital context. As of early April, the Google Art Project counts 155 museums, with 32,000 works now available for viewing, some of them in very high resolution. It has been subject to both interest and criticism from the museum community, and this encounter between international museum representatives and Amit Sood is an opportunity to discuss expectations and concerns.
