For those art fanatics and artists among us, you likely enjoy heading to museums to bounce back with art therapy and feel at peace absorbing new or old forms of art.

Since the pandemic, many museums across the world have been closed, which has put those art fanatics out of a means of art therapy. Although you can access art online for virtual viewings and also create your own art for therapy, it isn’t quite the same as visiting a museum and absorbing other artists’ physical pieces.

Nonetheless, museums are slowly opening back up and getting back on their feet. Yet, many are looking to transform their ways and adapt to new art forms. So, if you are into modern art and art technology, this might be something to be excited about. Here is more of what to expect from museums in the future.


A transformation of what is on display (and how it is displayed)

With museums being closed for almost two years, they are slowly reopening again yet with social distancing measures in place. This means it is harder than ever to get up close and personal to art pieces that are on display. However, it will be maybe made possible with more immersive forms of art, such as with art technologies and modern art forms.


Modern art forms can be made immersive using technology, which will mean that social distancing rules won’t interfere too much with the experience you want to attain from visiting an art gallery.

Frederica Wald suggests that right now is the best time to work in and for museums thanks to their changing landscape and transition into modern times. Therefore, if you are into modern art and art technologies, now might be the time where museums change to utilize those more than ever.

Online viewings

Should some museums not be able to afford to be open at all times, some museums and their exhibitions might turn to online viewings. Therefore, instead of being able to physically attend the exhibition, you will be able to view them from the comfort of your own home.


Although for some, this will not be the ideal way of viewing and consuming art, some people might prefer it. It can help art students and those that live far from museums that they want to visit be able to view the exhibition without needing to physically be there.

Mass audience orientated art on show

With most businesses transforming to be more digital, it could also be the same for museums. If museums implement digital technologies into their infrastructure, it will mean that they have the ability to take audiences’ data and perform questionnaires, which will help them discover what their mass audiences want to see on the show.


Therefore, it could be that the future moves onto displaying more of what their mass audience wants to see, which will lead to greater customer satisfaction. It will guarantee to showcase more of what art students and artists want to see and consume, which will fulfill their artistic needs.
