Nina Colosi is the Founder and Creative Director of Streaming Museum, launched in New York City in 2008 at the cusp of the 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 in over 80 locations 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.
Colosi emphasizes the value of the arts and digital technology in exhibition, world affairs and the market. In her keynote talk at ArtHelsinki on September 8, 2016, along with museum, art and financial market, and corporate art collection professionals, she discussed these concepts, as well as the future of collecting, highlighted by the introduction of her special guest, the internationally known humanoid robot Bina48.
Colosi also launched Streaming Works LLC (StreamingWorks.org) at ArtHelsinki – a conceptual and innovative brand created to offer collectors artwork by some of the world’s most significant artists. Art sales benefit Streaming Museum’s international exhibitions and programs, and artists’ ongoing work, inspired by Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s model of selling artwork to support their projects. With her consulting team, Colosi is also providing artworks that align with collectors’ interests and investment goals.
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.
