Over the course of the nineteenth century, the commercial art gallery came to dominate European and American art markets, transforming the experiences of artists, viewers, collectors, and dealers.  In this talk, Fletcher explores how digital mapping, specifically her  London Gallery Project (, can help explain significant shifts in the art market and exhibition culture, and raise new questions about the experience and expectations of art for a wide public.
