Collect art that explores how technology shapes the human condition.
We seek boundary-pushing media artworks — from emerging artists as well as established pioneers — to present in thematic salon exhibitions.
We invite artists, technologists, curators, writers, and other members of the creative community to come get acquainted with the pieces, discuss their significance, and vote on acquisitions, which we conserve and preserve. The museum opens up access by giving our members in-home access to our collection.
Unlike young patron programs at traditional museums, you directly inform what we collect. You’re an important part of capturing this moment and preserving it for posterity.
The Current hosts salons so that together we can broaden our perspective on collecting. We work with rotating curators and ‘localhost’ partners to showcase 5 to 10 artworks in salon-style exhibitions. Our members then vote on which works to bring into the collection, and get private access to the works they support.
