Peer One Video Tour Injects Contemporary Perspectives into the Walters' Collection


What: Peer One Video Tour

Peer One is a video tour curated by staff member and artist Kari Altmann using the museum’s new works of art database as a starting point. A group of peers in Altmann’s file sharing network, including artists, curators and bloggers, respond to objects in the museum’s permanent collection with contemporary perspectives. The videos are available as a tour of clips correlating with specific museum objects or galleries. The results range in form from experimental video art to critical audiovisual essays.
