Munchies Art Club has its eye on the digitalization and transitions affecting the art world. In particular, the gallery businesses and the artists. They are updating their websites, with online viewing rooms, online exhibitions, shows, and shops. More and more artists and galleries are using social media platforms to share with everyone a front-row view on their developments and happenings.
We do believe that the unique experience of an actual art exhibition and the act of standing in front of an artwork can not be replaced , but then again if you think about how familiar most of us are with the Mona Lisa, and how many have acctually stood infront of her in person, and yet she is still loved. Did you know that Mona Lisa has her own mailbox at the Louvre where she receives love letters?
Over the years we have learned to see what we cannot reach over a screen, we are savvy and the new generations have never known it any other way. They are used to looking at movies, reading, learning, working, buying from home. The use of the web of course is a personal choice, it is not for everyone.
