Nina Colosi is the Founder and Creative Director of Streaming Museum, launched in New York City in 2008 at the cusp of a new wave of expansion of the internet, screen culture and mobile devices. It was conceived as a public art experiment to use technology to produce and present programs of international arts and visionary ideas in public spaces and cultural centers on 7 continents and StreamingMuseum.org. The experiment developed, and over the years the museum’s programs have reached millions from North Pole to South Pole, world cities to remote locations.
The museum’s arts programs have promoted the culture, international relations, historic commemoration, and tourism of countries, and have given visibility to foundations and brands that support the arts.
To mark the 10th anniversary of Streaming Museum, Colosi has launched StreamingWorks LLC (StreamingWorks.org) to offer collectors artwork by some of the world’s most significant artists that focus on the concepts presented at Streaming Museum. Art sales benefit Streaming Museum’s international exhibitions and programs, and artists’ ongoing work, inspired by renowned artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s model of selling artwork to support their projects. Through collaborating international art advisors, artworks that align with collectors’ interests and investment goals are also offered.
A culmination of concepts that drive Streaming Museum is presented in A View From The Cloud — a multi-year international touring project of art and creative technology to sharpen how we see the world and to showcase innovations that advance humanitarian objectives and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. A View From The Cloud is co-produced with World Council of Peoples for the United Nations. It was introduced on September 14, 2015 at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza – “the Gateway to the United Nations”, in a program that featured international artists and presentations by United Nations Assistant Secretary General Janos Pasztor and astronaut Ron Garan. A View From The Cloud Exhibitions and public programs with experts across fields have been presented in Helsinki, Finland and Kvinesdal, Norway, and the United Nations Church Center.
Previously, Colosi had produced and curated The Project Room for New Media and Performing Arts at Chelsea Art Museum in New York City (2003-2010) and “Digital Art @Google”, an exhibition and public program series at Google’s New York City headquarters.
