Every Smart Museum Needs an Instagram Moment – Museum Tech Trends – Medium
A few smart museums such as the Hirshhorn and The Broad have figured out that curating an Instagram moment is an effective method for growing audience engagement and boosting public relevancy. The Hirshhorn channeled the excitement of Yayoi Kusama‘s mirror rooms to increase its membership by 6,000 percent. The mirrors rooms captured the perfect Instagram moment, a fun and rewarding experience to share with friends — whether in-person or online. The Broad picked up on this new audience trend and instantly had sold out crowds for Kusama’s installation in LA.

Instagram Trends: Visual Narratives of Embodied Experiences at the Museum of Islamic Art – MW18: Museums and the Web 2018
The Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) in Doha, Qatar is a landmark building in the city and the country. Located on its own island, the museum seems to float in the Arabian Gulf nestled between 'old' and 'new' Doha. Designed by renowned architect I.M. Pei, MIA is a popular destination for tourists and residents alike. With an Instagram following of more than 37 million users, the museum and its surrounding areas also prove to be a popular destination for photo opportunities. This paper presents the results of a 6-month study of more than 4,000 Instagram images, posted between November 2014 and November 2015, tagged to the Museum of Islamic Art's geolocation. Drawing on visual content analysis, the project reveals graphic trends in the visiting narrative, situating this experience not only within the museum's collection, but also within the social and cultural fabric of the country. The paper argues for a stronger emphasis to the role of visual media shared online, as a meaning-laden medium and embodied social practice that has the capacity to create preconceptions and expectations about museum visiting experiences. In addition, the potential of visual media is discussed as habitual products that fuel a virtuous circle of influence between individuals and communities through practices of collaboration and co-creation of information and narratives. Overall, the paper will offer an understanding of the potential of Instagram as a reflection of the cultural citizenship of the varied memory communities associated with the museum - online and offline.

Damien Hirst hates sausages! How Instagram became art's new playground | Art and design | The Guardian
In our era of post-truths and fake news, Prince’s Instagram appropriations seem as on trend as Cindy Sherman’s new image-dramas of self-presentation. But while she puts her art on Instagram, he makes his by plundering it. Either way, it’s becoming artists’ favourite social media app. Adolescents need Snapchat, media drones must have Twitter, musical.ly is for miming schoolgirls, and LinkedIn a mecca for middle managers – but increasingly, Instagram is where the art world plays.

Not being photogenic in the age of Instagram: Natural History Museums
The 5 museums that were analyzed were all natural history museums that are located in major English speaking cities. English speaking cities were chosen so that there could conceivably be an overlap in audiences. The cities chosen were New York City, London, Washington D.C., Chicago, and Los Angeles. The museums were, respectively, the American Museum of Natural History; the Natural History Museum, London; the National Museum of Natural History; The Field Museum of Natural History; and the Natural History Museum of LA.

Instagram is killing the way we experience art in museums — Quartzy
Curators have come to embrace social media as a way for visitors to engage with art, explains Dr Kylie Budge, a senior research fellow at Western Sydney University. “It tips the balance of power and makes the experience more democratic on some levels,” she says. “There’s an element of co-creation involved. With platforms like Instagram available, the person experiencing the art now has the capacity to respond and create something instantly that communicates their reaction.”

Museum objects and Instagram: agency and communication in digital engagement: Continuum: Vol 0, No 0
In recent years, museums have focused on engaging the public in their collections, exhibitions and programming as they reimagine themselves in the light of changes in technology and visitor expectations. This article spotlights public engagement with museum objects from the perspective of museum visitors, specifically how they engage with objects through the visual social media platform of Instagram. It draws on a case study of Instagram users who visited one popular, urban, Australian museum of contemporary art. We argue that visitor engagement with museum objects on Instagram is informed by agency and authority on the part of the user, and a primary motivation to communicate shared experiences using photography. Findings include a significant focus on objects despite public concerns that social media use in museum spaces is leading to a decreased public engagement in this area. Implications stemming from the research include specific insights for museum practice and understandings that have a potential to impact communication, engagement, and contemporary cultural practices generally.

Instagram is changing the way we experience art, and that's a good thing
Recent research at Queensland’s Gallery of Modern Art Gerhard Richter exhibition showed that visitors use Instagram as part of their aesthetic experience. A number of participants posted Richter’s art works on Instagram creatively immersing themselves in the image, wearing clothes matching the art, and copying Richter’s signature blurred style.

Another study at the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences’ Recollect: Shoes exhibition in Sydney found that audiences used Instagram primarily to engage with exhibition content; not by taking selfies. Visitors mostly photographed the intricate details of the shoes’ design.

InstaFame: Is It Relevant to Museums? – Museums and Digital Culture — Pratt Institute
Using Davis’ article as the starting point, manual spreadsheet entry captured the top 25 museums’ Instagrammed ranking compared with visitor counts and Instagram follower counts. Follower counts serve to further a point that Davis made about a lack of correlation between Instagrammed ranking and Instagram follower counts. This observation isn’t as dramatic as the gap between Instagrammed ranking and museum visitors but adds a level of complexity.

How a stranger 700 miles away is showing me the world's greatest art
The timing has been strangely ideal. Almost a month back, I was in hospital for a short but exhausting multiple sclerosis treatment, which has left me languid and occasionally confused upon waking. With a few weeks off work, I have been stirring late with nothing to do but lie tangled in the duvet and gawp at my phone. Dawdling on Instagram one morning, I saw that @MuseoPrado, the Spanish gallery's official account, was filming a live video. I tapped on the icon and found I was staring at a vast, intricate arrangement of humanity, arms and legs and bodies clustered together, some terrified, some placid, some monstrous. In the distance, rounded hills gave way to the perfect edge of an electric blue sea. It was arresting, this scene: it seemed so medieval and also so modern.

Objects in Focus: Museum Visitors and Instagram - Budge - 2017 - Curator: The Museum Journal - Wiley Online Library
While there is increasingly widespread use of social media by those visiting museum exhibitions relatively little is understood about this practice. Further still, the focus of such practices is unknown yet research in this area can reveal much about how visitors using applications driven by smart phone technology are engaging with exhibition content, space, design, architecture and people. This article draws on a case study of one exhibition using visual content analysis to frame, explore and interpret visual and text based posts by visitors using the social media application, Instagram, as part of their experience. Findings suggest that museum visitors using this application do so to account for and record details of their experience that draws attention to exhibition content, specifically objects. The implications are extensive for cultural institutions given the uptake of social media in all corners of life, with museums and galleries being a lively context for social media use via mobile technologies.

Museums Are Embracing Selfies, Social Media, and Virtual Reality - The Atlantic
Earlier this year, at the Whitney Museum of American Art, in New York, visitors paraded through the fifth floor to see a retrospective dedicated to the abstract expressionist Frank Stella. Although many of the works on display were four or five decades old, in some ways the show felt tailor-made for the Instagram age: a riot of vibrant colors and textures, 20-foot-long reliefs, and sculptures as jagged and dynamic as 3-D graffiti.

Sharing Content - Pinterest, Tumblr, Instagram, and Flickr | LibraryLinkNJ
Once you’ve created your visual social media images, how do you share it with the world? Many libraries already have Facebook pages they use to share visual content. Facebook is an excellent platform for sharing this content; however, the audience is somewhat limited to those patrons that like your page and those that share your content. There are many other social media platforms out there designed specifically for sharing visual content.

'On Broadway' Is a Stunning, Data-Driven Portrait of Life in New York City | The Creators Project
ON BROADWAY transforms the length of the iconic thoroughfare into "a visual metaphor for thinking about the city: a vertical stack of image and data layers,” turning the entire length of Manhattan into an orchestra of easily-explored information. Inspired by Every Building on the Sunset Strip, Ed Ruscha's 25-foot-long artist book that depicts a continuous photograph of a 1.5 mile section of Sunset Boulevard in 1966, the team collected things like 660,000 Instagram photos shared along the avenue from six months in 2014, over 8.5 million Foursquare check-ins made since 2009, 158 days of Twitter posts, 22 million taxi pickups and drop-offs in 2013, info from the US Census Bureau, pictures from Google Street View, and more, and compressed life in the Big Apple down into one linear installation.

Curious Conversations with the Curious Public: Digital Engagement – the Wellcome Collection Experience | Claire Bailey Ross
The next presentation at Show Us Your Assets was by Russell Dornan, Web editor at the Wellcome Collection. Russell gave a really great overview of the Wellcome Collection’s digital activities, from using social media, blogging, to digital storytelling and video projects. He then focused on three tools (Instagram, using hashtags and blogging stories) that have been particularly successful for the Wellcome Collection. The nice thing being that these three things can be scaled up and down and applied to any other museum with little or no cost (other than staff time). Finally, Russell provided a range of really helpful dos and don’ts. (NB. All images are screen grabs from Russell’s prezi which is available online)

#EMPTYMET by Dave Krugman - Exposure
I reached out to some of my favorite mobile photographers who have large followings, anywhere from 30,000 to over 1,000,000 per photographer. We put a team together and brought them in on a Monday, when the Museum was closed to the public. We had 2 hours to wander the empty halls, composing our shots and capturing the uninterrupted beauty of the Museum. In exchange for the private access, I had the photographers direct their followers to the Museum’s page, where they could decide to follow the Museum as well. Raising awareness that the Museum had a profile was a big part of our efforts. We wanted to build a community for patrons to engage with. We repeated the same process multiple times throughout the past two years. When the project began they were just shy of 4,000 followers, as of this writing they have 183,000. The Museum won the Webby Award for best Arts and Culture Social Marketing, and the New York Times featured the project on the front page of the Arts section.

The bright side of visitor photography, now and later | Thinking about museums
Documentation is a key element in the Reggio approach. It serves many purposes, most of all as a way to study how children learn. Documentation is about what children are doing and learning. The product of that documentation becomes the material for learner and teacher to discuss what the learner is learning and how. For the learner, it becomes a way to reflect on their learning and crystalize it, and for the teacher, it becomes a way to gauge how their  instruction is being received, so they tailor it to suit the learner’s needs. Documentation becomes the way that learning is demonstrated and discussed.

Instagram and Art Theory
Maybe it seems as if there’s a tension between Berger’s enthusiasm for image-sharing and the criticism of the inanity of what technology actually does. But it’s the fact that Ways of Seeing helps square this circle, to break out of the choice between dismissive traditionalism and easy techno-optimism, that I think makes it useful. The whole purpose, for Berger, of having a political take on how images function in society is to point beyond this binary: technology makes possible many good things; political and economic conditions guarantee, however, that it is constantly warped so that the same kinds of bad patterns repeat themselves, in new and improved forms.
