art and covid 19
It is certainly complicated to create art exhibitions with the current problems imposed to deal with the covid19 emergency. The alternative applied by a multitude of both public and private structures appears to be online exposure. Substantially, covid 19 did not affect artistic production, but unintentionally enhanced the online exhibition methodology that was still practiced prior to the invasion of the pandemic. The alternatives offered by information technology for contemplating the panorama of works of art are many. Basically with the virtual world of art is visible with a simple click from our home. Through the virtual tours it is possible to enjoy the most important exhibitions organized by modern and contemporary art galleries. To admire the wonders of classical art as well, we have a wide choice of the main museums with virtual guided tours. Thanks to Gogle Arts & Culture and with the extension to Google Art Project our virtual involvement becomes exceptionally educational, not only for the gigantic amount of works of art made available, but for the substantial possibility of downloading and using different applications ( Art Filter / Pocket Galleries / Art selfie / and more).
The involvement continues with various educational games through coloring, crosswords and with the exploration of over ten thousand famous sites and with over two thousand international museums. It is possible to customize a gallery of works of art with a personal selection of all the works made available. Foundations that manage artistic assets to fuel their visibility have also been forced to consider IT support with spiritual tours. The international modern and contemporary art fairs that could not exhibit due to the sudden and unexpected pandemic of Covid 19 have however activated virtual artistic settings. The visibility of the main artistic events was also made known through the numerous online magazines and in the online version of famous newspapers with specific editorial spaces that explore the international artistic realities on display. Even the economic aspect limited to the sales of works of art is resolved through the online participation of interested buyers with the now stabilized auctions of contemporary art sales.
