A BEAUTIFUL TEAM

Jean Vergès

Co-founder & CEO

"Follies are the only thing you never regret", Oscar Wilde

My goal has always been to use the Internet to make art accessible, clear, and fun. Why? Because art & the Internet are about gathering people together, about accessibility, clarity, and fun. But so many people don't see it. So many people think art is elitist and intellectual. With UMA, my aim is to prove them wrong! Art is for anyone and everyone!

Co-founder & Public relation

"Let's put art in life, and life into art", Marie d'Agoult

When Sisso was created, one of our goals was to create the first virtual museum. Time went by and we attended different matters… Now, some years later, it warms my heart to see that UMA has picked up the dream and carried it through! This new adventure will blur the limit between reality and the virtual for the benefit of art: UMA will allow exhibitions to exist and artworks to be reunited, in spite of material and geographical impediments.

 

Benjamin Lanot

Co-founder & CFO

"They didn't know it was impossible so they did it", Mark Twain

The Internet revolution and the evolution of displays have greatly disrupted our way of seeing the world in general, and culture in particular. Because I am passionate about art and new technologies, I want to see them work hand in hand in lasting cooperation. At Sisso, we have been easing the greatest cultural institutions into the digital transition for 7 years. This experience has led me to picture an entirely virtual museum, where art is dematerialised and thus made accessible to everyone, outside of the constraints of reality: UMA is this dream come true!

Damien Jacq

Co-founder & CTO

"We will have the destiny that we deserve", Alfred Einstein

For me, UMA embodies the ideal of a 100% digital cultural project. When it comes to art, what is at stake in today’s society? Three words: democratization, accessibility, and innovation. UMA is the solution to all three. The public will be able to project themselves in various spaces; learn about various themes; live through various temporalities, all within frequent and unique exhibitions.

 

Mathilde Louette

Development manager

"Fine art is that in which the hand, the head and the heart of man go together", John Ruskin

UMA is the logical outcome of our modern relationship to art and culture. It is the answer to a timeless ideal of cultural transmission and it comes in a digitalized, highly stylized shape that brings together the best of worldwide art with the latest technological possibilities.

If we live in a hyper-connected world, why are there yet so many inequalities when it comes to accessing knowledge ? UMA’s aim is to bridge some of them by truly connecting all cultures through a virtual artistic globalisation.

The project is as tremendous as our motivation; let us bring you art, wherever you are!

Christelle Akué

Marketing Manager

"Art is the shortest way from man to man", André Malraux

UMA is an innovative concept that immediately caught my attention.  I think art should be universal, accessible to all, without restriction. Our passion for art, our motivation and our concern to bring qualitative content are our priority. I am happy to work for the first Universal Museum of Art, made in France.
