Streaming Museum presents contemporary-themed exhibitions of international fine arts, pop culture and cross-disciplinary perspectives to a global audience through an expanding network of screens in public spaces on 7 continents, partnering cultural and commercial centers, and Since 2008 Streaming Museum’s exhibitions have been viewed by millions of people in over 65 locations around the world.


We believe that the arts and technology channel inspiration and knowledge that make the world a better place.


Streaming Museum’s programs are inspired by the “overview effect” which describes the transforming experience of astronauts looking at earth in space. And in parallel to this we believe that the “worldview effect” of looking at the world through the arts, people, cultures and visionary ideas, is a key element in this transforming experience. Technology has made it possible to watch the entire world. The question is … what do we see, and what needs to be attended to.

Our content centers around contemporary-themes that reflect multi-disciplinary perspectives from the arts, sciences, global economics and geopolitics, cultural diversites and commonalities, our interdependence and future.


Our core team includes Nina Colosi, Founder and Creative Director of Streaming Museum, Curators Tanya Toft and Juliette Yuan, Videographer and Co-producer David Bates, Jr., Website Manager Dylan Fisher. Additional Team Members and Guest Curators join us for specific projects around the world.  Thank you to our Generous Sponsors, listed below.
