The Real and the Virtual Art Museum Screenshot of Google Art Project featuring Vincent Van Gogh's The Starry Night So much of the press and discussion around the Google Art Project has focused on comparing the experience of the virtual gallery with the real, in-person experience. The question seems to be, will the Google Art Project replace or somehow despoil the experience of the museum visit? But I think this commentary overlooks an important part of the Google Art Project: the way it allows users to—in a way—remix and share their experience of so many great works of art.

The world's best secret art galleries Matt Carey-Williams International Director, Haunch of Venison, London IBID Projects is located on Hoxton Square, and stands in the shadow of the much larger gallery there, White Cube 2 – sometimes interesting things take place in the shadows. The space is deliberately unfinished and this physical rawness allows for an interesting dialogue between space and object which heightens our experience of their exhibitions.

Collection When The Met was founded in 1870, it owned not a single work of art.

Why Virtual Galleries Could Help Shape a Different Future for Artists by Chris Davies Virtual art galleries may be an emerging concept for many, but there are several good reasons why these could provide an exciting new avenue for artists working in all mediums. Ever-advancing technologies, combined with radical changes in consumer trends and how art collections are curated, could all point the way towards an exciting digital future for creatives. But what are these changes, and how can artists get involved? What is a Virtual Art Gallery? A virtual art gallery is more than just a website featuring images of artists’ work. List of most visited art museums - Wikipedia This article lists the most visited art museums in the world (significant museums where art is the major focus; i.e., some museums that contain art are not included such as the Natural History Museum) based in part on an attendance survey for 2014 compiled by The Art Newspaper.[1] Many of the most visited art museums also feature on the overall list of the most visited museums in the world.

Living Collections Catalogue — Collections Each volume of the Living Collections Catalogue includes media-rich essays on broader themes as well as in-depth investigations of specific works of art. Featured works link to records in the Walker’s collections database, where additional information about the artists and artworks is available. Implicit in the concept of a “living catalogue” is the dynamic nature of an online volume about the Walker’s collections. Information in the database is updated as new research and presentations occur, while essays are versioned and citable with assurances of a permanent address to the information referenced.
