The Digital Collection

Jump to navigation Jump to search


While a big part of MOMA happens offline in the studios of makers and in face-to-face engagement at pop-up galleries in real life, the Museum recognizes the importance and validity of Digital Art practice and therefore is building a collection of digital works.

The Digital Collection is being housed here on the Museum's wiki, but digital artworks are also exhibited in our Pop-up Galleries that appear on the streets and in community spaces.

Celebrating the First Contribution to the Collection[edit]

We are so excited to announce that Welum has contributed the first image to the Collection. Welum's participation is shows that the project is working because it is the first engagement by a wiki user unknown in real life to the founding artist!

How to Contribute to the Collection[edit]

For the time being, if you are keen to contribute your Digital Art to MOMA please create an account and then leave a message for Loretta Monetta on her profile message board. She will get back to you and you can take it from there. Please not that the Digital Collection is about art works created using digital technology, it it not for photos of analogue artworks.

Curating the Digital Collection[edit]

We're really keen to find people to curate the collection as a whole and also to curate specific Exhibitions of Digital Art. If you are interested, please create an account (if you have not already), and then leave a message for Loretta Monetta on her profile message board.
