“Hashtags of Art” is the initiative of the Museum of Fine Arts of Rio de Janeiro together with the agency NBS. According to André Lima, CEO of the agency: “The project appropriates the language used in social networks to contextualize and even synthesize the plot of a work of art, so we describe the pieces that are exhibited in the museum in a light, fun, popular and closer to a generation that was born connected. “
Since its premiere, “Hashtags of Art” has already been visited by more than 8,000 people and attendance at the museum has increased by 60% compared to last year. The success has been such that the exhibition has been extended until 2020.
