4 Stories: Multigenerational Mobile

Paper
Susan Chun, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, USA

This discussion of “4 Stories,” a new multimedia gallery guide developed by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, focuses on a series of questions addressed by the design and interpretation teams that developed the mobile site: Is it really possible to build a mobile resource for a mixed-age audience? How does design support interaction with a range of content in different media? Can curators, educators, and editors agree on one story and one work to serve as an entry point for an entire exhibition?
