I am pleased to announce the launch of the digital “New Art in The New Age: What Was Modern” exhibition in conjunction with the T. E. Hulme Colloquium at Wolfson College, University of Oxford. The exhibition, first displayed at Brown University in 2005, represents years of labour from collaborators around the globe.
This exhibition features drawings and paintings that were reproduced in The New Age between 1910 and 1914. A weekly periodical with a wide readership among London intellectuals, and one that imagined itself as providing a neutral platform from which the champions and opponents of various movements in the visual arts could speak, The New Age was uniquely positioned to showcase debates taking place over the nature of “modern” British art at the time.
This was my first time using Omeka, and I was impressed by its friendly user-interface and attention to metadata standards. I highly recommend it as a presentation tool.
