Do you have a love of art and what is happening in the discipline? Then you found the ultimate tool to stay current.
–James Lanigan Thompson

The art world at your fingertips

It’s easy to use, and the global reach of the database is unmatched.


So handy!
You couldn’t ask for more in an art gallery application! It is so helpful when it comes to planning those days you’ll spend visiting museums and galleries! Intuitive, simple design makes it A+!
–Alexander Iezzi

Best companion to art & openings
I love this app! It keeps me in the loop of what’s happening in the art world wherever I am. I can’t wait to travel overseas with it.
–Teufel Friedrich

The best companion for seeing art anywhere.

Comprehensive and easy to use
There are very few apps or websites out there that cover art museums and galleries all over the world. artguide is one of those. The New York listings are consistently up-to-date. I often use it to see the gallery openings since it is more comprehensive than many other apps that I have used. Yes the app focuses on the main cities like New York, London, and Paris, but I also find pretty extensive listings in some smaller but also important art cities, like Shanghai, Beirut, and Bogotá. It is a good companion for going to art fairs as well. All of the Miami fairs were listed this year and it made planning the trip much easier with the map option.

Fantastic app for gallery visits
Love this app—it’s extremely helpful for planning my itinerary for visiting galleries in New York (which I do frequently because of my line of work). It organizes galleries based on location, which is immensely helpful when navigating through a long list.

Clean, simple interface and great information
And best of all, useful for so many locations—anywhere my travels would take me.

This is the best gallery guide!!!
If you have any degree of interest in what’s happening in the art world today, you should download this app! All the information is kept up to date and is super helpful when traveling.

Great for non art people

A great app for people like me who aren’t the most plugged into the art world to find out what to see. I had no idea there were so many options in my city for viewing new art at weekly gallery openings. Very clear, consistent layout and doesn't spam you with ads. Well worth the 3 dollars.

My favorite!
I’m so impressed by this app that I decided to write a review (my first). I use it in NYC all the time and can’t wait to use it as my guide to discover the scene when I visit Beijing. So easy to use and also love the graphics. Thanks Artforum for helping me navigate the art world!

The best art guide out there
I’ve been in the market for a good art guide and nothing compares to Artforum’s. It has led me on countless art adventures around the world. No other app is so international. Create your own gallery visit list, read an exhibition’s press release, even tweet what you saw. Already, I don’t know what I would do with out it!
–Dayle NY

One-stop shop!
It’s very useful when I'm going to openings, and the “nearby” function is the best! Also, I like that it’s not just NYC listings... I’m traveling in Europe this summer, so now I can plan ahead and save shows to see while I’m there.
–Michel M

An impressive achievement and a beautifully designed app! It’s nice to see something useful from a magazine app instead of rote digital copies of their print issues.


Artforum does it again!
This is amazing. It’s great to have all this info in one place with all the art that happens in NYC. Can’t wait to use it in other cities when I travel too!
–Rachel Stoewer 

A flawless piece of programming that puts the artworld at your fingertips. I had people following me around Istanbul like ducklings as I led them from one show to another. Bravo Artforum!
–UK Johnny

Must have!
A must-have app for anyone who wants to know what’s going on around them in the art world! Exactly what I was looking for.

Indispensable guide for seeing art internationally

A necessary tool for navigating the chaos of the art world. I use this frequently in New York to stay on top of what’s opening and closing, and shows I would have otherwise missed, and found it equally useful when I was in London. The app is great for letting art aficionados feel like a native wherever they are.

Great app!
I use this app all the time! The data is comprehensive and the interface easy to navigate—a must-have for doing the Chelsea rounds.

A wonderfully helpful app that is informative and easy to navigate.


I love it! Already starred some shows I want to see. Very useful.

Easy and useful!
This is exactly what I’ve been waiting for!!


How did this not exist until now?
So helpful and exactly what I’ve been looking for. Offers an all-encompassing guide to the latest art shows wherever you are. My favorite part is the map. Having it all in one place is amazing. Thank you, Artforum!
–Lucia BK

So much information at your fingertips. Fast, intuitive navigation and elegant design. I am very glad I downloaded it.

Great app!
This app is so useful. It’s very helpful to have an organized, accurate, interactive mobile list of exhibitions and events in hand. I used it in Chelsea last weekend and was reminded of exhibitions I would have otherwise missed.

Artworld guidebook

While usually I completely dislike art apps, this one is terrific. It is a constantly updating, all-encompassing, and personal guidebook—literally at your fingertips. Absolutely everything you would need to know about seeing art anywhere, abroad or at home, so easy to use, and so easy to personalize. Although I don’t want to admit it, I am already finding it essential.

Best art app!
I absolutely love this app. It gives you a comprehensive guide for everything that’s happening in the art world. I highly recommend it.


I have never reviewed an app before, but I just had to write something for this one. It is such a great helper for me, as I am incredibly disorganized and can never remember where or when any events are. Now I can keep track of them easily! Also great that there are global options, I travel a ton for work, and never know what to do in the cities I’m in. Looking forward to using this even more in the future!
