It finally has come to Eric and Ando talking about Instagram. Take about 5 minutes to watch the video clip in the links below to get a better understanding of what we are discussing today. 

Audiences are more comfortable viewing and buying art via their phones than ever before. Why would there not be curators creating exhibitions with that interaction in mind. A trend of “MADE-FOR-INSTAGRAM” exhibitions are trying to change the way we engage with our traditional institudions. In this episode, Eric and Ando discuss two specific spaces. The Museum of Ice Cream in New York, and the Color Factory in San Francisco.
