Multi-Award Winning Gallery
The Gallery of Lost Art won a further two awards for an Online Exhibition award at the Museums and Heritage Awards in addition to the prize for Interactive Design at the Design Week Awards 2013. It has already been awarded the Art prize at the SXSW Interactive Awards the world's biggest music, film and creative technologies festival, and 'Best of Web' Digital Exhibition prize at the Museums and the Web conference both held in the USA.
The Gallery of Lost is an online exhibition that tells the stories of art works that have disappeared. Destroyed, stolen, discarded, rejected, erased, ephemeral – some of the most significant artworks of the last 100 years have been lost and can no longer be seen. Visitors to this virtual exhibition enter a large warehouse where photographs, newspaper cuttings, letters, images and films are laid out for examination, revealing the last traces of lost works by over forty artists across the twentieth century, including such figures as Marcel Duchamp, Otto Dix, Joan Miró, Willem de Kooning, Rachel Whiteread and Tracey Emin.
The yearlong project is a collaboration between Tate Media and Tate Research, and was designed with Glasgow-based creative agency ISO, with funding from Channel 4 and The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).Return to news list
