Now we all know the impact that social media has on our everyday lives. It brought you here, to this blog post. It’s how we communicate, how we shop, how some of us build our careers and even how we find love. But have we ever thought about the impact it has had on art?
Unit London, founded in 2013 by 2 young artists wanted to “break down barriers of elitism” and include everyone in contemporary art. They’ve teamed up with Avante Arte to hold a free exhibition in London of art popularised on Instagram. Fact of the day, it’s reported that “48% of art buyers use Instagram”. We headed down to Wardour street to check it out.
If art is your thing then showing casing it on your Insta account may be the best way to get you noticed!
