MICHAEL REID SET TO RELEASE EXHIBITION IPHONE APP
Michael Reid set to release exhibition iPhone app - Art Collector
|29 June 2010 | Sydney gallerist Michael Reid is currently developing an app that will allow collectors to browse his gallery's exhibitions on their iPhone or iPod Touch. |
He believes it will be the first commercial gallery application in Australia and possibly also a world first. An app for the iPad and 4th generation iPhone are set to follow.
Reid says the move is part his gallery's response to the changing communication ''eco-system'' in the art world. ''Eight years ago galleries had the choice of mail, telephone & advertisements by which to make contact with clients or the public.'' But now he says galleries can also add websites, email, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr and apps to the list.
