Last week we had the opportunity to visit Palau Robert, an Instagram exhibition in Barcelona. Essentially, popular Instagramers were invited to take photos around Catalonia in an effort to publicize various tourism spots. The exhibition is a compilation of all of the Instagram photos set in a small, quiet garden, which you can see below. You can see the submitted images here – many are excellent.
It was clever to incorporate social media in that way, especially after all of the publicity Instagram has received since its acquisition by Facebook this summer. If you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know what I’m talking about, you can find an article here with details on the purchase. You can read a different article here by Forbes that explains some of the reasons for the purchase. And, lastly, you can see a really funny interview by Instagram founder Kevin Systrom below.
