IKT at BAAD
On May 1st, the BAAD Art Center hosted a group of about 40 international curators as part of the annual IKT conference that was taking place in Israel this year.
It was a great opportunity for us to test our archival systems: index cards, online archive and artist files. The guests went through the art works and the additional information and took notes about some of the participating artists.
It was an introduction to the art center activity which will accelerate with the opening of our first exhibition “BAAD Influence” and the launching of the project’s website.
