Enriching Exhibition Scholarship: Reconciling Knowledge Graphs and Social Media from Newspaper Articles to Twitter

The development of methodologies and workflows to create structured metadata about art exhibitions and objects from catalogs, historic newspapers, and social media. The UK partner, the University of Edinburgh, is requesting £249,999 from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Artwork exhibitions bring diverse cultures together, exposing artists, scholars and the public to new experiences. These interactions affect stylistic trends, art markets, and cultural perceptions, yet are very difficult to study as we lack holistic, structured data about participation of audiences and objects. This project brings together an international and interdisciplinary team of experts in the fields of linked open data (LOD), exhibitions, art history, and AI to create or enhance machine accessible exhibition descriptions. This will be done by combining LOD graphs and cutting edge natural language processing applied to newspaper archives and current day social media. We will extract object identification and audience reactions from social texts across time. We will explore national and international exhibitions using open data from the domain, and detailed knowledge from university art galleries, including engagement with a contemporary Ashmolean exhibition via social media.
