The art market has been characterized as intransparent for most of the past. It continually demonstrates an asymmetry in data access, which is not shared by one and all equally. We at Navigating.art want to change this. Our vision is to improve art data access and become the most relevant art data platform worldwide. Founded in 2020 with support of a well-known foundation, we have everything on board that is required to accomplish this mission. Until today, our platform is already hosting data for 40k+ artworks, 60k+ archival resources, and 14M+ media items. Our company website will launch soon too.
Navigating.art is committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for everyone who works here or with us, regardless to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion (or lack thereof) and art preferences.
