A case study of Art Historians and Engineers on an impossible mission.

What can you achieve when you give Engineers and Art Historians an impossible mission – to make all the world’s art accessible to anyone with an internet connection? These two professions have rarely crossed paths. How will they collaborate? Will the former speak incomprehensible futuristic code, while the latter obsesses about obscure details from ancient literature?

For the past two years at Artsy has been working on precisely this mission. In building “The Art Genome Project,” they have had to overcome the many challenges of working together, and in the process have learned new ways of thinking that have allowed them to invent a completely new experience for browsing art. (They have also built a business with a successful online marketplace and hundreds of partnerships by bridging the commercial and the not-for-profit art worlds.)
