Unfortunately, and due to current circumstances, most people all around the world had to put on pause their daily routines, and stay home. That means that in a month like April, where contemporary design is typically celebrated, many iconic design fairs had to be either postponed or cancelled. But in these hard times, is when the most brilliant minds are called to action. Some of the most amazing museums and art galleries in the world of contemporary design have created digital design exhibitions that will take you on a design journey you have never seen before.
Design ExhibitionsThe concept of online viewing first started to blossom in the late 2010s as powerhouses like David Zwirner and Pace Gallery began to offer access to their pricey Koons and Hockney works in their online viewing rooms, which used a log-in system. Now more galleries and museums than ever are turning to digital exhibitions to maintain their public-facing programming.
Museums and galleries around the world are finding innovative ways to translate their contemporary design online for viewers everywhere to discover at home. Made up of more than just works on view, the art and design worlds also comprise openings, lectures, fairs, biennials, and galas.
Hope & Togetherness, Carpenters Workshop Gallery
While the traditional white-cube art exhibition display remains the most refined and delicately mute backdrop to honour an artist’s work in person, the global health crisis has mandated an inevitable alternative, with gallerists and curators discovering the possibilities of limitless space and access that enclosed interiors inherently lack.
Atelier-E.B.: Passer-by, Garage Museum of Contemporary Art
Both the commercial and nonprofit sectors are quickly responding to the need to stay connected with online programming that pushes the technological and creative contemporary design limits of virtual presence.
Material Matters, Pace GalleryGoogle Arts & Culture’s collection includes the British Museum in London, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Guggenheim in New York City, and literally hundreds of more places where you can gain knowledge about art, history, and science. This collection is especially good for students who are looking for ways to stay on top of their studies while schools are closed. Now, you get “go to famous museums” and never have to leave your couch.
