With 2020 just around the corner, we thought that now would be a good time to take a look back at our year, sharing some key facts and figures related to our work with museums and curators.

Vastari's 2019 journey

In the last 8 months,

  • Over 155 object requests have been placed with us by museums

  • 250 new curators have joined our platform, averaging around 40 per month

  • Over 240 objects have been suggested to curators for exhibitions

  • We've spoken to over 300 museums around the world

  • We now have over 9400 institutions on the platform, from North America, Asia, Australasia, South America, and Europe

  • We've had 1270 new objects uploaded on to the platform since the 1st January, and are broadening the scope of artworks we have

  • We undertook our first training session for museums in association with a museum development programme

  • We also partnered with Christie's Education to deliver an Exhibition Masterclass in NYC

  • We reached our personal record by facilitating 6 loans to one exhibition!

What a year it has been, and we are only around three quarters of the way through! Our vision of connectivity and accessibility to museums, collectors, producers and the public is what has led to Vastari's successes and is what will continue to drive the company forward. There are so many things Vastari is involved with, from our online platform to surrounding events, but our mission stays the same: building transparency to enable more exhibitions to happen around the world.

These stats are part of our Annual Report, which will be realeased in September and will look at our journey from August 2018 - August 2019. You can read last years report here.
