Collect art that explores how technology shapes the human condition.
We seek boundary-pushing media artworks — from emerging artists as to established pioneers — and present thematic salon exhibitions.
The Current brings together founders, artists, technologists, curators, young professionals and new collectors to get acquainted with artworks in our intimate member salons.
Unlike traditional museums, our collection exists entirely on a peer-to-peer storage network and members have access to the works at home. As a members, you directly inform what we collect. You’re an important part of capturing this moment and preserving it for future generations.
The Current Museum and Betaworks Studios are collaborating in 2019 to activate a new space for art that examines technology’s impact on the human condition. Join us for a Kickoff Celebration on Thursday, January 10th, 2019 that transforms the Betaworks Club in NYC into an immersive exhibition of The Current’s Collection.
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.
