Artabase is a beta social networking site for the arts community that “aims to become the world’s best online database of art history” by turning contemporary event listings into a growing database of artistic happenings. Artabase’s concept is based around a collective definition of history, and as such, they recently adopted CC-licences in their uploading process for images – keeping their imagery as open as their text. Artabase joins Rhizome.org, amongst others in the online art world, in embracing CC-licensing.
