Minneapolis Institute of Art to Launch iPhone App

. October 23, 2009 . 0 Comments

The Minneapolis Institute of Arts (MIA) presents an innovative exhibition that explores nontraditional methods of displaying, engaging with, and understanding African art—the first part of a long-term plan to reinstall all of the museum’s African art galleries. iAfrica: Connecting with Sub-Saharan Art, on view October 3, 2009 through April 4, 2010, shows 28 objects from the MIA’s collection, in a variety of different, experimental settings that challenge the viewer to see the works from different perspectives. Central to this approach is soliciting feedback from visitors, to help inform the broader African art reinstallation initiative. The museum is also launching a companion iPhone application—only the second American art museum to develop an iPhone app.
