Four years after its launch, Artsupp opens to international museums.
Artsupp is the online museums portal trough which is easy to find art, exhibitions and artworks in Italy.
It now arrives in Europe with the aim of involving the highest number of cultural institutions in sharing their activities with users.
Looking for: … Museums in Rome
How many times have you looked online for: museums in Rome, museums in Venice, exhibitions in Turin without even writing the simple preposition “a” before the city?! With Artsupp having this information is easy.
Artsupp main goal is to ease life for those looking for art and museums online, by bringing together the widest and most complete cultural offer possible from museums around the world, on a single portal.
Museums can share their activities and the artworks they exhibit on Artsupp, by creating a free account on the platform, or by taking over existing accounts not yet personally managed by the museum.
“Our mission is to transform Artsupp into the largest online art community.”
We want to make the world of art and museums more accessible, giving users the opportunity to leave the most popular tourist routes and the chaotic information of social networks, because we believe in a new way of exploring the artistic heritage”.
How does Artsupp work?
On Artsupp there are more than 900 Italian museums and cultural institutions active accounts which daily share new content such as exhibitions, events and artworks from their collections.
In addition to Italy, some of the most important international museums have decided to become part of this large community.
In the Netherlands, the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam is among the first museums to have signed up. It will soon publish the largest Vermeer exhibition ever held on its profile, with a preview of the artworks on display and images of the installation. We are talking about one of the most important European museums, hosting the largest collection of paintings from the Dutch Golden Age and a large collection of Asian art.
In Spain in Madrid, Barcelona, Zaragoza and Leon, have joined respectively the the Municipal Museums of Madrid, the History Museum of Madrid, the the History Museum of Catalonia, the IAACC Pablo Serrano and the Museo Casa Botines Gaudì of Leon.
In France, the Museums of Nice and the Jean Cocteau Museum in Menton, all exceptional symbols of the cultural heritage of the Côte d’Azur. The Museum of Time and the Museum of Fine Arts and Archeology of Besançon , in Burgundy, have already joined us.
In In Germany, we are already happy to welcome the Frieder Burda Museum in Baden Baden and the August Macke Haus Museum in Bonn, while in England the the Turner Contemporary in Margate, one of the most important contemporary art galleries in the United Kingdom which tells the story of Margate with Joseph Mallord William Turner.
In addition to these, it is possible to find most of the museums in France, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany and Spain with a profile that is not yet active, it is still possible to find out where they are and check the opening hours.
Soon the profiles will be activated by the respective museums and they too will be able to share the exhibitions and the works they exhib
A growing community
Artsupp and all its contents are now automatically translated into French, English, German and Spanish. Also the information of Italian museums with an account is available in 5 languages for new international users.
It will also soon be available with an all-new design and enriched with new features to make navigation even easier and more intuitive. Registered users will be able to follow the museums and receive news from similar museums on their profile.
A project that comes from below
As a small startup we have been online since 2018 with only 50 museum institutions scattered throughout Italy, of different nature and size. Nowadays, more than 900 have an account
Born as a homemade project, today Artsupp is the first aggregator of contents on the national cultural offer and the feedback received from the international cultural institutions give us hope for the future!
