ABOUT THE BASS²
The Bass² (@TheBassSquared) is The Bass Museum of Art’s satellite virtual gallery hosted exclusively on Instagram, exhibiting art native to the digital realm. Launched in summer 2019, The Bass² was made possible by the John S. and James L. Knight Center Foundation. The Bass² is a free and publicly accessible virtual exhibition space, modeled after a traditional (physical) museum experience. The project presents art in direct and unmediated ways as an extension of the brick and-mortar museum, uniting artists who work in digital media with audiences from around the world who engage with digital platforms in their daily lives.
Daata commissions original, digital artworks by established and emerging artists, allowing you to stream or download high-quality digital artworks on any device.
Daata offers a simple way to build, curate and display your own collection of high-quality digital artworks without the additional costs of space, storage and security.
Founded in 2015 by David Gryn, Daata is the leading platform for digital artworks. Through our three avenues—Daata Editions, Daata Streaming and Daata TV—we offer hundreds of original, digital works by an ever-growing portfolio of contemporary artists.
Our plans are simple and varied; allowing you to collect, stream and consume high-quality contemporary art in a way that works for you.
Daata is proud to have collaborated with leading institutions, art fairs and brands from around the world including Frieze, MOCAD, The Bass Museum, NADA, EXPO CHICAGO, Phillips, The Hammer Museum and Art Cologne. We have also presented screenings and events in conjunction with Soho House, the Toronto and Venice International Film Festivals, Art Basel Miami Beach, Salon 94 and the Julia Stoschek Collection.
