Art Basel: There's an App for That -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog
Bridget Carey at the Miami Herald had a article Monday about two new Apps designed for Art Basel week. The first is for Art Basel itself, with interactive maps, exhibitor lists and artist images and info. It's basically the whole fair catalog on your iPhone, letting you know which artists are at which galleries with all the important information. The Collectrium iPhone app is for the satellite fairs. Designed to make the hunt for art more interactive Collectrium users can snap a photo of a two-dimensional artwork at Art Miami, Scope Miami, Art Asia or Aqua Art Miami, and if the artwork has been logged into the apps database, it will relay details about the artist. For Art Miami, the app also includes a show-floor map. Collectrium satellite-fair users can browse through exhibits to mark their favorites before arrival; and they can share their favorite art on Facebook, Twitter and via e-mail.
I will try both Apps to help me get around.
