Art UK has announced the launch of Curations, a revolutionary free digital tool allowing anyone anywhere to create an online exhibition.
Museums and other public collections can also mount digital exhibitions of physical shows that have closed or imagine exhibitions they would like to stage in the future. During lockdown, Curations will be of particular value to collections.
Curations is free to use. We have developed it to encourage people to engage with the nation's art. The tool allows anyone to choose artworks for their exhibition from Art UK, the online home for the national art collection. 250,000 artworks by 46,000 artists from 3,300 collection venues are on the site – numbers that are growing all the time.
Anyone can add commentaries or notes to their Curations, organise artworks – and you can choose from a selection of exhibition display modes. Curations can be kept private or published publicly and you can share them on social media – we recommend using the hashtags #CurateYourOwn and #ArtUKCurations.
Whether curating your favourite artworks, exploring a more thematic approach, or revealing your amazing discoveries, be inspired to tell your own stories behind the nation's art collection.
