ArtStack is the latest new social platform for the art world, launched in 2011 as a place for artists to find, share and discover art, architecture and design. The idea is to ‘stack’ images of interest which can then be grouped into tailored collections by artist, medium, museum, gallery and more. Users can comment on their favourite pieces and pose questions to curators and dealers. In ArtStack’s first year, 10,000 artists joined the site across 130 countries, sharing everything from old master works to contemporary pieces by emerging talent. Many of the world’s top galleries and museums have joined the social network, originally started by three Cambridge graduates. Through ArtStack, users can curate their own online exhibitions, talk to other art fans and keep track of their favourite works. Follow John Jones on Art Stack here!
