In response to the global lockdown, art is going digital. The online-magazine of Christie’s International Real Eastate luxurydefined gives some guidelines on where to find the best virtual viewing rooms, and how they can help to curate your collection.
Galleries and art fairs worldwide may have shut their brick-and-mortar establishments for the time being but, thanks to the rise of online exhibits, a wealth of paintings, sculptures, and installations is available to enjoy right from your laptop screen.
While these virtual spaces feel futuristic, the art they showcase still functions in the same way it has for millennia—as a much-needed respite from reality. “This is a time when people are seeking solace,” explains Andria Hickey, senior director and lead curator at Pace, a contemporary gallery with headquarters in New York and galleries in locations including London, Geneva, and Seoul.
