Art.sy’s mission is to make all the world’s art accessible to anyone with an internet connection. It is a free, open-access platform where you can discover, learn about, or collect art. Art.sy features works from leading galleries, museums, private collections, and artist estates.
Art.sy is powered by The Art Genome Project®, an ongoing study of the characteristics that distinguish and connect works of art. Art.sy evaluates artworks across 800+ characteristics (we call them genes)—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.
By using the latest advances in technology and design to make art more accessible, Art.sy aims to foster a new generation of art lovers, museum goers, collectors, and patrons.
Art.sy is led by Carter Cleveland, a computer science engineer from Princeton University with a passion for fine art, and Sebastian Cwilich, a former executive at Christie’s Auction House and Haunch of Venison Gallery. Art.sy’s Senior Advisor is John Elderfield, Chief Curator Emeritus of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Art.sy’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; Peter Thiel, founder of Paypal, Board of Facebook; Josh Kushner, managing partner of Thrive Capital; 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.
