Art Discovery: Explore, Filter and Collect The Finest Art and Authors with Art.sy

Art Discovery: Explore, Filter and Collect The Finest Art and Authors with Art.sy | Content Curation World | Scoop.it


Robin Good: Art.sy is a fine art discovery and sharing platform based on the Art Genome Project, which allows anyone interested in learning and exploring works of art, authors and genres to do so by selecting a few initial references matching his taste and then browsing the ensuing universe of visual choices and related connections.


"Art.sy is a new way to discover art you'll love, featuring work from leading partners, museums, and private collections around the world."


You can search, browse and save, into a collection of your favorites art pieces, the authors or the themes you have chosen to follow.


It works like this: "In the same way you might customize your ShoeDazzle profile, you spend a few minutes choosing works of art you like. A personalized feed of art comes up. Or you can use filters like medium, color, size, price or very specific ones like Contemporary Vintage Photography."

(Source: http://pandodaily.com/2012/10/08/automating-curation-the-long-awaited-launch-of-art-sy-arrives/)


The Art.sy "collection comprises 25,000+ artworks by 3,700+ artists from leading galleries, museums, private collections, foundations, and artist estates."


"Powered by The Art Genome Project—an ongoing study of the characteristics that distinguish and connect works of art—Art.sy creates new pathways for discovering art through 800+ characteristics (we call them “genes”).


Users can discover works through connections between art-historical movements, subject matter, and formal qualities, creating infinite serendipitous opportunities for discovery and learning."


Due to the above, Art.sy is also a great example of how art education can be effectively improved by providing an explorative platform rather than a didactical one, where the learner can discover his own path, rather than being forced throgh a "standardized" official one.

100 Curators: Emerging Artist Collections Curated on Saatchi Online | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Saatchi Online is an online curated art gallery for emerging artists, providing both quality selections and the means for young artists to sell their own work easily.


The "100 CURATORS 100 DAYS", is a new, recent initiative (started in July) that recognizes 1,000 artists for their outstanding work.


Since July 18 2012, every day for 100 days Saatchi Online will reveal one curator’s selection of ten artists to be included in the largest exhibit of its kind. The curators have made their selections from over 60,000 artists that are currently exhibited on Saatchi Online. The entire list of curators for 100 CURATORS 100 DAYS can be viewed July 18 at www.saatchionline.com/100curators.


(More info on this initiative: http://www.saatchionline.com/press)


From the official site: "Saatchi Online is a platform that allows emerging artists to showcase and sell their work and gives art lovers insider access to new talent from around the world.


Launched in 2006 by London’s renowned Saatchi Gallery, Saatchi Online aims to continue the gallery’s legacy of promoting new, contemporary talent and bringing great art to a wide audience.


A place for first-time buyers and serious collectors alike, Saatchi Online brings new talent directly to our members through a curated environment."


"Our vision has always been to empower sustainable careers. We enable artists to sell their originals as well as make them available as prints while giving them access to an engaged global audience. Artists manage their own portfolios and price their own work letting both artists and collectors skip the formalities of the traditional gallery structure."
