The Princeton Art Museum, like many other museums, is increasingly using video to record on-site events, and then making the recordings available online. The Princeton Art Museum video archive provides a broad selection of content, including musical performances, artist interviews, lectures, behind the scenes videos, and videos that originally appeared on exhibition websites. Nicely underscoring the nature of video, the musical performance is part of the Museum's Memory and the Work of Art Project, an April 13, 2011 performance of Steven Mackey's Ars Moriendi, and Barbara White's Reliquary. Composer White introduces the performance with a short speech about the ephemeral and indelible duality of musical performance. Several of the lectures and artist interviews in the archive are also part of the Memory and the Work of Art Project, including a lecture given in 2011 by architect Maya Linn, and a conversation with artist Christian Boltanski and biographer Mark Stevens.
