New YouTube Channel | ArtStoryLab

Posted in resources, teaching resources by Editor on August 7, 2020

A note from Hyejin Lee:

In April, I created a YouTube channel called ArtStoryLab, featuring short videos on various art-historical topics. I have ten episodes so far, and most of them center on 18th-century European art. As the channel grows, I hope to branch out into other fields of art history. I upload a new video every few weeks. All ten episodes can be found here.

My aim for the channel is to create fun and accessible art-historical contents that everyone can enjoy. While my videos feature recent works by other art historians, I prioritize my personal interpretations on artworks in each episode to empower my viewers to form their own opinions about the visual, material world they inhabit. I have created the channel also as a teaching resource for art history courses in the age of remote learning. In the future, I would like to feature my colleagues in interviews and other formats to show art historians in action in academia, museums, and elsewhere. The big vision for the channel is to demonstrate to the global audience at YouTube the importance of visual literacy and the relevance of art history for today’s world in approachable, entertaining ways. I would greatly appreciate it if you could share this channel with your colleagues and students. I also welcome any questions, comments, and suggestions for future episodes.

    As editor, I usually aim for something like quiet neutrality, but I’m keen to chime in with glowing appreciation for Dr. Lee’s work. The segments that I’ve seen so far are excellent—and most welcome in this age of flipped classrooms and increased online learning. In particular, Hyejin brilliantly models effective handling of sources, one of the things that tends to be dropped most quickly with populist engagements, especially in video segments. The productions feel accessible, engaging, relevant, and smart. Thanks, Hyejin!
