Digital Innovation in Art Award 2019
.ART took part at London’s Hilton Park Lane in the prestigious annual celebration of European tech — the 17th Investor Allstars ceremony. This year Digital Innovation in Art, a nomination supported by .ART, brought two winners, chosen by a panel of expert judges: Artwork Archive and Kremer Collection.
Artwork Archive is an innovative art business management software brand based in Denver, CO. Its cloud-based art database system offers a wide range of easy to use tools, including inventory and contact management, sales reports and expense tracking.
Ex-Googler Joel Kremer is the director of The Kremer Museum, a VR museum which hosts an Old Masters collection of about 75 works collected over the years by Joel’s parents George and Ilone Kremer.
The shortlist most voted for by the .ART audience was Niio.
Niio is reimagining the way humans interact with art in their everyday lives. Underpinned by a robust technology platform that powers the entire ‘digital art’ ecosystem with dedicated management tools, Niio has amassed a global community of 3,500 leading artists, galleries and institutions who have stored and published over 11,000 high quality digital format artworks. Niio can then ‘port’ this gallery-quality digital art onto any screen, anywhere – unlocking an entirely new form of consumption: streaming digital art via subscription or purchase.
