The “Digital Collection” of the Städel Museum in Frankfurt/Main, Germany, was relaunched recently. Previous to this second version a beta version was shared with the public in 2015, which displayed an innovative way of connecting art works with each other, using various keywords and categories.
Like shards of glass different keywords are scattered on the screen, when opening Tate Explorer Version 1 by Shardcore. When selecting one, they expand to new keywords that are subcategories of the former. Doing this several times will lead down to individual images taken from the Tate collection. Clicking on the images displayed as thumbnails on the right-hand of the screen leads the user to the entry for the artwork in the Tate’s online collection.
“Inventing Abstraction 1910-1925” was an exhibition hosted by the Museum of Modern Art, New York (MoMA) from December 23, 2012 till April 15, 2013 (exhibition website).
The network visualization shows the relationships among the artists that were represented in the exhibition. Red highlighted artist are those with the most connections.
