Artport is the Whitney Museum's portal to net
art and digital arts, and an online gallery space for commissioned
net art projects. The site consists of five major areas:
- The archive of "gate pages," which function
as portals to net artists' works. Each month, an artist is invited
to present their work in the form of a gate page with links to
the artist's site and most important projects.
- The "commissions" area, which presents original
net art projects commissioned by the Whitney Museum.
- The "exhibitions" space, which provides access
to and information about current and past net art and digital
arts exhibitions at the Whitney.
- The "resources" archive, which links to galleries,
networks and museums on the Web; past net art exhibitions at venues
world-wide; Web publications relating to net art and digital arts;
as well as new media festivals. This archive is constantly evolving
as new organizations and resources are added.
- The "collection" area, which archives the
works of net art and digital art in the Whitney Museum's holdings.
The current Artport site, designed by treasurecrumbs, was launched
in February 2002. Artport 1.0 (March
2001 - February 2002) is accessible as an archive.
