The High Museum’s award-winning mobile app, ArtClix, encourages visitors to interact with select works in the collections and with each other. The user photographs a work of art, and ArtClix uses image-recognition technology to identify it. The app also delivers additional information and multimedia content, such as videos of the artists discussing their work (currently available are videos of artists including Julie Mehretu, Radcliffe Bailey, and Vik Muniz). Visitors can unlock surprising details about works of art, share their own photos on social media, and contribute their thoughts to the ArtClix community using words or specially designed emoji.
Below, please watch a selection from our video series of living artists and experts discussing works in the High’s collections.
