Company / App Name: Vastari
What does it do?
Vastari helps connect those who own art with museums for exhibition loans.
Private collectors, dealers and art advisors can gain targeted, anonymous exposure for their works to curators from leading museums worldwide.
Why do we need it?
There is currently no place where private individuals can connect with museums without going through a commercial third party.
The same works are seen in museum exhibitions repeatedly, while a majority of the works don\’t get exposure.
Who is it for?
- Curators at museums who are planning exhibitions
- Collectors who own noteworthy works of art, design, history or memorabilia.
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
There currently is no other online platform dedicated to this type of networking, focusing on loans of art rather than sales.
Vastari is developing its subscription-based system in the next 6 months, is joining the first cohort of the Microsoft Accelerator in London and is developing an adjacent database to connect museum-to-museum about exhibitions.
