Providing digital realities for artists, museums, festivals & cultural organisations
Exhibitionist is a multidisciplinary collective of digital arts workers. We seek to create new models and formats for how the arts community can engage with the digital and explore ways to create alternate frameworks for the collaboration, creation and dissemination of artistic work.
(Em)powering Art Organisations & Festivals
Working across a range of virtual applications, from festival mapping to digital curation, Exhibitionist hopes to transform the passive spectator into an active one. We look for ways to design new models and formats for cultural institutions to engage with their audience and ask from the beginning of our process: why should the audience care?
We provide customised ticketing integrations that interface with your existing infrastructure. This new model allows festivals and art organisations to greatly improve their customers experience and develops new tools for administrators to connect with and understand their audience.
Some of these features include: passwordless authentication, digital ticketing, resale workflows, high-traffic sales optimisation, and customised data analytics.
The online platform is a fundamental element of how audiences engage with the program, content and vision of a festival. Our previous experience in working with large-scale festivals allows us to create a comprehensive digital platform that combines programming, ticketing and festival information with interactive maps and unique online engagement opportunities.
Our curatorial approach focuses on new formats and models for the collaboration, creation and dissemination of artistic work. We seek to engage with virtual forms of creative expression and investigate contemporary movements and ethics around technology.
Within the ever changing landscape of technological tools, Exhibitionist aims to facilitate digital production for artists. Pairing expertise with concept, the collective takes a collaborative approach to conceiving or adapting work between artists, developers and digital practitioners.
