The Experimental History Project receives Graham Foundation Grant


In 2014, The Graham Foundation for the Advancement of Studies in the Fine Arts awarded CCA’s Experimental History Project a grant for the conference and exhibition Platforms: Augmented Histories of Space.

The Graham Foundation supported the execution of the Platforms symposium and exhibition that took place at CCA’s San Francisco campus in January 2016. Platforms explored an array of new digital tools for uncovering the history of buildings and cities. The event convened experts from the worlds of academia, technology, art, and historic preservation to ask: How might historians employ mobile, locative, and pervasive technologies to present research in more immersive and engaged formats? What can scholars learn from transmedia artists and technologists exploring the boundaries of experimental film, documentary, and mobile media?
