Artclear Launches Pilot Site with Global Art Logistic Leader Constantine
Artclear is delighted to announce the launch of its first pilot installation with Constantine – the specialists in global fine art logistics.
Throughout the initial trial Constantine will pilot the Artclear scanner to create a digital signature for works placed in their care, a service offered to any client upon request. In the context of artwork transportation, these signatures can be used to verify that a work is the same as one that was previously handed over.
When the Artclear data network goes live, the signatures created in the pilot will be converted to digital records. This will allow collectors, galleries and museums to secure their collections when they are in other people’s custody, and will also provide opportunities for enhancing operational and financial activities, facilitating shared ownership, and creating digital art tokens.
Overseen by Chris Kneale, Associate Director at Constantine, the collaboration with Artclear is another example of Constantine’s commitment to innovation for its clients.
