Research & Art: The role of online exhibitions

The current Covid-19 crisis has brought radical changes in our lives including the workplace. 

Our access to the exhibition spaces has been restricted in line with health and safety measures, and a number of exhibitions have been adapted in virtual form to Aalto University’s website. 

While the expectation is that virtual spaces will replicate as many physical activities as possible, demands urge us as curators and exhibition-makers to consider new ways of thinking. Questions of creating, managing and hosting content online responsibly and fully aware of the ways in which online representations bring new challenges with new opportunities. 

The urgent need for user-friendly and accessible digital tools and platforms for co-creating online exhibitions drives us to develop a robust online platform to Aalto University. We want to become a leading example in the educational field, with the DNA of creative practices imprinted in our virtual exhibition design. 

This page provide a selection of Aalto exhibitions adapting to online interfaces and will be updated throughout 2020.
