Dec. 3, 2018 – Just in time for Art Basel Miami Beach and Miami Art Week 2018, ARTBnk announces the release of its mobile app designed to enhance the art fair experience.
Everyone who has attended an art fair – especially Art Basel Miami Beach – knows how crowded and chaotic art fairs can be. With thousands of works on display, remembering the few that truly capture your imagination and move your soul is no easy task. Art enthusiasts, collectors, dealers, advisors, and artists alike can now rely on ARTBnk to keep records straight after “Fair Fatigue” sets in.
Enter the ARTBnk app, which lets users:
- Capture & crop artwork
- Label artwork by Artist, Title, Category, Surface, Size, Sale Price, & more
- Get instant and objective Real Time Valuations (RTVs) for nearly 100 artists, including Damien Hirst, Yayoi Kusama, and Gerhard Richter
- Sync with desktop account
The ARTBnk app brings the most powerful element of ARTBnk’s SaaS platform — Real Time Valuation, or RTV — to the smartphone. ARTBnk’s RTV provides valuations for tradeable art by applying modern technologies to the world’s first accurate and optimally structured art market database.
“Miami Art Week is where buyers buy and sellers sell,” said Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Robert J. Steinberg. “We estimate that’s nearly half the booths at Art Basel will contain tradeable works for which ARTBnk provides a Real Time Valuation (RTV). Knowing a work’s RTV informs decision-making for both buyers and sellers.”
“Art Basel and the surrounding fairs are one of the most important, but chaotic weeks for collectors and art industry professionals,” said ARTBnk Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer Jamie LaFleur. “The ARTBnk mobile app allows users to enjoy the fair and document their experience in real time. Any dealer, collector or consultant will find this app indispensable.”
The ARTBnk mobile app is available for free download in the Apple App Store. An Android version will be available in the Google Play Store in January. Anyone can sign up for a free Beta account at www.artbnk.com/mobile.
