Questionnaire for Arts Professionals

20 September, 2023

AOPA has created a questionnaire for art critics, curators, art historians, gallerists and all arts professionals. Please click here to fill it out and share. We would like to get at least 25 respondents.

The objective is to better understand what arts professionals want and need, when researching artists and artworks online for their professional activities. The data will be presented as part of Don Goodes’ presentation on the Art 2.0: Platforms and Visual Art panel discussion (October 20, 2023, 8h30) at the 2023 UAAC-AAUC Conference in Banff, AB, and will be published in a blog post here.

The findings from the questionnaire will also be used to test our hypotheses for the UX design of AOPA’s Retrospective platform of for these key users. We will adjust things accordingly to ensure that they get the best content from our artists.

Here is the promo video that is being used for an Instagram ad, and again the link to the questionnaire. Thanks!

Client Feedback

I love your attention to detail, be it in the design, the images, editing text, improving on my writing. Your background in writing is an extra asset to your service. You were very professional in the whole process. You take the whole of the client's needs into consideration and that is what makes your service unique. You care, and it shows in the creation of a beautiful product. I felt you went beyond what was needed to make the site spectacular.

Mariela Borello, Montréal artist

I have so appreciated working with Don at AOPA to create my website. His knowledge of navigation on various screen sizes, his understanding of clients' needs, combined with his attention to detail and endless patience makes working with Don such a pleasure. My online presence has enabled my work to be professionally presented to gallerists and clients alike, which in turn has resulted in exhibition invitations and exposure in print, and has got my work out to a much larger audience . I trust Dons judgement, appreciate his professionalism and I have and do highly recommend collaborating with him on any project.

Jennifer Small, Montréal artist

I am very pleased with my site, its appearance and functionality. I was also happy that you showed me how to do some of the work myself so I can do the updating. You aren’t some young hotshot so I felt like I would be less likely to be judged for my ineptitude with all things computer-related. I am particularly pleased that people continue to be able to find it. I know that is something you put a lot of work into.
