We are living in a digital-media saturated world that increasingly demands a highly developed ability to see, understand and communicate with the images around us. Through its Innovation Lab, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery is seeking to understand how obvious gaps in today’s public-education system can be addressed by introducing the concept of visual literacy. Drawing upon their research and experience in education, the arts, museums and digital communication, the panellists will discuss how a new emphasis on visual language can serve as a global catalyst for change.
