Here at ContemporaryArtETC.com we always like to let you know which direction things are moving in and whats hot and (sometimes) whats not in the world of contemporary art. To do this we regularly visit museums, galleries, colleges and alternative spaces to bring you up to the minute information and share our experiences. During the last year or so we have visited several spaces in a number of towns and cities in the UK, Europe and the USA; at times it has been tough work but someone has to do it. Often the most problematic thing about making such sorties into the contemporary art world can simply be planning the trip and finding the art. So to help ourselves and our readers we are launching Art e-Maps ETC… which provides a series of online maps marked with the art spaces and places ContemporaryArtETC.com have visited in a particular place. The maps can be found by clicking on the links below or the links in right hand column of the site.

Glasgow Art e-Map etc…

London Art e-Map etc…

All maps will be updated as appropriate and new maps will be added very soon including Berlin. If you would like to suggest new maps, locations or spaces please contact us using the comments option.

Happy travels
