Exhibitions, are they really worth the effort?
The first exhibition I ever attended has left me with very vivid memories.
It was a solo show and I was surrounded by a single, very powerful narrative.
The artwork was totally brilliant, but what affected me most, was the concept of an exhibition itself.
It was the perfect platform for telling a contextual story, and to a captive audience, much like a cinema or theatre.
In the marketing of art, presentation has got to be one of the most important components, and holding an exhibition in an art gallery has long been the premiere way to achieve this.
As real estate rents rise, many galleries are ceasing to exist, so holding an exhibition is becoming more of a luxury, and one only a few can afford.
The internet is globalising the art market but its ability to showcase art in the form of an exhibition has been missing, until recently.

Exhibitions require a great deal of thought and effort to pull off, so if your fortunate enough to own or have a gallery to hold one in, it makes good sense to extend its reach and life online.
If you are not represented by, or own a gallery, then online is probably the only way you will be able to show your work.
This is the very reason we created Exhibbit. We wanted to create familiar gallery environments for art lovers and buyers to explore contextual and themed exhibitions in, a solution that artists and gallerists could manage, one that is affordable.
There are many times I have wanted to share the experience of an exhibition with my friends, but the best I could do was email or post a few photos ... now, I can send an entire exhibition for them to experience.
Exhibbit is twice as fast - the more you use it - the faster it becomes.
We have literally made the very first download of Exhibbit twice as fast.
Subsequent downloads become even faster with average times between 14 and 5 seconds over a 4g cellular network.
This is great news for your clients wherever they are, as it evens up the delivery times to most areas of the world.
The resolution has been increased to accommodate large scale works. We have smoothed the transition when moving towards an artwork from across the room giving continued clarity of the image throughout the move.
