Description

FitArt provides art shows on your phone in the form of a fitness plan. Available to download for iOS and Android, the application is designed as a series of workouts, featuring exercises created by artists.
Since early 2020, in order to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus, authorities worldwide have imposed the closure of public places with increased risk of contagion, from art museums to gym facilities, asking the population to stay home. This has contributed to the rediscovery and popularization of digital fitness training formats designed to guide movement and maintain or gain physical fitness while in isolation. Against this backdrop, FitArt appropriates the design of popular fitness apps to bring artists’ works to the viewer – onto the personal mobile phone.
Building on widely spread and highly accessible technologies – a mobile phone and an app developed for it – FitArt grants a wide audience to experience works of art even in times of social distancing and isolation.
