When you’re surfing the ‘netz, how do you find out about art events and art news? You probably have a far-flung constellation of links you check in on to keep up with galleries, news, reviews, openings, auctions, art fairs, museums, and so forth.
Well, there’s this new subscription-based art site, MutualArt.com, that will collect all that info for you, culled from thousands of international sources and customized according to your specific interests. The site is still in beta, but Women & Their Work can hook you up with a free membership. From their site:
MutualArt.com has a completely new approach to art on the web. Members can track categories of art – even individual artists – and receive new information on these from thousands of sources. They also receive advance notification of art events in the categories they choose – from exhibitions and lectures to opening parties and galas, to auctions offering works by their preferred artists.
MutualArt.com includes the world’s largest online archive of over 150,000 art related articles from over 250 quality magazines, newspapers and journals, as well as providing a conduit for galleries, museums, auction houses, art fairs and publishers to reach their target audiences over a single, global platform.
Even if you’re more of a lurker than a joiner, you should totally take advantage of this! It’s 2008–if you don’t have the Interwebs customizing everything for you by now, you’re doing it wrong. To claim your spot on MutualArt, follow this link:
