The Catalan Wikipedia collaborated with the Juan Miró Foundation to open an exhibition from October 2011 until March 2012.
The project put QR Codes next to some of the artworks and linked the codes to Wikipedia articles. The QR Code identifies the phone language and presents the article in the user’s language.
QRpedia allows the visitor to satisfy his curiosity about a particular work in his language anywhere, any time and for free.
The total scans inside the galleries of the Foundation was 12.381.
As the articles were available on Wikipedia, the content was accessible to everyone, not only to the visitors of the exhibition, so the number of Miró-related visits between October and March reached 1.2 million.
The Wikipedians activity didn’t stop with the selected 17 works in the exhibition, but ended up with more than 50 articles about Miró’s work, currently available in 49 languages.
