Artsy

Artsy is a new way to discover art you’ll love, featuring work from leading galleries, museums, and private collections around the world.

Artsy launched at Disrupt in New York in May 2010 winning the Rookie award.

The site then shifted focus from a general-interest art-buying site to one more focused on high-end art dealers and collectors. Artsy signed up powerful New York city art dealer Larry Gagosian as an advisor and is negotiating with other world-class galleries to highlight their artists on Artsy.

Artsy is powered by The Art Genome Project, an ongoing study of the characteristics that distinguish and connect works of art. Artsy evaluates artworks along 1000+ characteristics—such as art-historical movements, subject matter, and formal qualities—to create a powerful search experience that reflects the multifaceted aspects of works of art.

Artsy’s investors and advisors include global leaders in the arts, media and technology. Investors include Dasha Zhukova, founder of Moscow’s Garage Center for Contemporary Culture; Wendi Murdoch, film producer; and Jack Dorsey, creator of Twitter. Advisors include Larry Gagosian, owner of Gagosian Galleries; Marc Glimcher, president of The Pace Gallery; and Joe Kennedy, CEO of Pandora.
