Artsy – contemporary art online


Artsy is a new online site for discovering (and purchasing) contemporary art. It is useful for exploring art based on style and other visual criteria, and as an introduction to art recently on show at international galleries and select museums. Artsy is powered by innovative technology, which it calls the “Art Genome Project.” From their blog: “Artsy creates new pathways for discovering art through 1211+ characteristics (we call them “genes”). Users can discover works through connections between art-historical movements, subject matter, and formal qualities, creating infinite serendipitous opportunities for discovery and learning.” Developers and backers are experienced professionals from the art and technology worlds.

Artsy does not offer images for download through the site, but the browse feature and online access to contemporary art are a notable resource for anyone interested in contemporary art. Sign up to follow artists and customize the browsing experience. More about Artsy in the New York Times.
