The MOMA & Technology
A recent article in the NY Times discusses a website created by the MOMA called ‘Studio Visit’ which is a place for artists (sadly only in NYC) to rise above the internet fray by uploading info about their studios and work. ‘Studio Visit’ includes “images and video of the artists’ works — an image of each artist’s studio building, a brief statement by the artist, images of the studio’s interior and a satellite map showing the location.” Apparently the MOMA uses the site to keep up with emerging artists. They even have a ‘curators’ picks’ section. According to the artists involved their websites and studios have seen huge increases in traffic. I love the idea of our institutions getting involved in helping artists highlight their work and not get lost in the maelstrom of information on the web. Just another way that technology can help artists do what they do best - make art!
