Timeline of the month: The Modernist Art Movement from India

16th Nov 2012 | Tasha G

We've been meaning to start a blog for some time now, but it's easy to get distracted by the day-to-day work of running a business. 'I've just got to reply to this email, and then provide some support to that user and then....' Before you know it, it's the end of another day, and the intended blog post remains unwritten. Well, no more putting it off!

To inaugurate Tiki-Toki's new blog, we'd like to kick-off what will hopefully become a monthly tradition: featuring one of the beautiful timelines created by our users. Since this is the first time we've done this, we've chosen this month's featured timeline ourselves, but in future months people can submit their own timelines to be featured (more on that below).

This month's featured timeline is the Rubin Museum of Art's timeline on The Modernist Art Movement from India. We think the timeline itself is fantastic. Its use of Tiki-Toki's Category Band and Equal Spacing modes beautifully showcases the content.

Tiki-Toki's Category Banded view allows you to split the timeline into horizontal bands, one for each category, in this case 'Events in the Indian Art World' and 'Historical Dates in India'. Equal spacing, meanwhile, forces stories to display at equal intervals, which gets rid of overlapping stories and gaps in the timeline.

If you're in New York City between 16 November 2012 and 29 April 2013, stop by the Rubin Museum of Art and see the exhibition on Modernist Art from India that the timeline is based on.

Now for your timelines. If you're interested in having one of your timelines featured in the coming months, drop us an email at blog@tiki-toki.com. Please be sure to include the link to the timeline and provide a bit of information about it - why did you create a timeline about that subject, what was the most interesting thing you learned while creating the timeline etc.

Thanks for reading, and enjoy exploring the Rubin Museum of Art's timeline!
