National and international art galleries use some of their most famous works to joke about how we show ourselves on different social networks.
You can give it a try, but it doesn't seem likely that by using one of your Tinder photos on LinkedIn you will get your new job. Or maybe yes, everyone there. But it seems that there are some unwritten rules by which we all know perfectly what kind of snapshot goes on each of our social networks, as if we compartmentalized the information we provide in all of them.
Your border can look great on LinkedIn or even Facebook if you want your family to be proud of you, but if you see someone on Tinder you swipe left. And a memory with many friends with liquid joy in their hands and to which you have put more filters than a customs office is a very option for Instagram, but it does not seem very smart that you upload it to the social network to find work (give a mijita bad image about drinking) or Tinder (those who see it will wonder who of all those people you are). I think this is understood.
And since reality imitates fiction and vice versa and art imitates life and vice versa as well, museums around the world have been uniting by putting their own works that best combined with the social network in each box, being in the four categories the “usual” is a portrait of someone from the nobility on LinkedIn, a family scene or with friends on Facebook, a character in a bucolic setting on Instagram and something more spicy or pinkish parts of the body are seen on Tinder.
In Spain there are several museums and foundations that have joined the meme and some of them have done it quite successfully. The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum has done it with paintings of Sebastiano Del Piombo Schad, Picasso and Lichtenstein, but there are also Puppy, the dog made of flowers (the work of Jeff Koons) in the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao or Gustavo Bacarisas, the Gibraltarian painter in the Museum of Fine Arts in Seville.
In the international arena, the list is endless: from the greatest champion of impressionist painting, the Parisian Museum of Orsay to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Metropolitan in New York or the Viennese Leopold Museum, which has focused its four images on the artist Egon Schiele.
