Mapping Art: CloudPad, ArtMaps & The Cartography of Participatory Arts Practices

Gabriella Giannachi, Department of English, University of Exeter, UK

The principal aim of the presentation is to outline the role of mapping in a number of projects about artistic documentation including CloudPad, a tool for the documentation and annotation of hybrid works; ArtMaps, a platform that visualizes the entire Tate collection on a map; and The Cartography of Participatory Arts Practices project, which aims to create an interactive participatory cartographic platform that aims to offer a voice and visibility to participants and audiences to participatory arts practices in arts museums.
