Artist Onboarding Guide

Introduction

  • You are invited to show in a virtual exhibition on New Art City. We're a no-code toolkit for building 3D multiplayer installations online. We have helped produce dozens of exhibitions this year, and many artists have built astounding installations on their own using our tool. You can see all of our public shows on our main page at newart.city to see what people are doing and get some inspiration. More on our mission and values here.
    • Some of the most common file types on New Art City are MP3, JPEG, gLTF, and MP4. A complete list of supported formats is available here.
    • We also support live streaming through OBS, Zoom Pro or any other livestream tool.

Here's what happens after you submit your work.

  • The curator uploads your images, audio, video, and 3D shapes to our visual editor.
  • On each piece they can add metadata including:
    • Title
    • Artist Name
    • Description
    • Alt text (used in our 2D, screen reader accessible catalog view)
    • Outbound link
    • Outbound link title
  • The works are then arranged in the 3D space using our visual editor. This can be done collaboratively in real time.
    • Audio is spatial and audible radius can be adjusted.
    • Images and videos can be mapped onto cubes and spheres.
    • Images can be mapped as textures on any 3D object (results can be chaotic and fun)
    • Multi-channel video and audio is supported.
    • GLTF and FBX animations are supported.
    • We automatically web optimize your image and video pieces.
  • Nothing is hard coded and changes can be made easily– there should be time for feedback to be incorporated before your piece goes live, and changes can be made at any time in the production process including after launch.
