ShTArt – Collecting 2.0 is starting
Share The Art
Art has always been created to be shared: from the statues of the Greek temples to the Renaissance frescoes in the Italian churches, the public showing of the artworks has always been considered essential to its existence. In the various stages of wealth and decadence, the economic progress of our society has often allowed a growing number of people taking private the artworks. However, even if kept private and often architectural part of the house (such as the mosaics of Villa Romana del Casale di Piazza Armerina) in the past centuries masterpieces have always been enjoyed by many people, since the houses were part of the social events.
Today the world of social networks increased the number of contacts but limited the use of our houses as meeting places. The home remains a private and intimate place, where many of our best internet friends are generally not allowed to come in.
We can share digital information and pictures, such as photos visible to friends on Facebook, but the houses are open only to a much smaller group. This unfortunately creates an impasse with regard to artworks, which are more and more easy to buy, with price transparency brought by the databases and accessible online sales, but more and more difficult to physically share with friends and the other collectors.
After several years of interesting discussions in the board “Investments in art and collectors” ( http://www.finanzaonline.com/forum/investimenti-arte-e-collezionismo/ ) we decided to show physically some of the paintings belonging to the most active users of the board, attaching links to the board, so that the visitors of the show may interact on the board with the owner and with other fans of a given artist.
ShTArt will be the first fully interactive show, representative of the taste of a modern and well-informed collector, born in a virtual place, to bring a physical and virtual that can return immediately after the vision. The division into four sections (KN Italian abstract art – International Artists – Art from the Nineties – Emerging Young Artists) reflects the most popular discussion forum and provides easy guidance to those who’re just looking at the exhibits and fun to read without intervening.
From now on everything changes.
