At the present time, being the consequence of its web presence, the group of semantically close formations, such as archives - depository - museum, acquires a new quality. Within the framework of such wide concept as «virtual culture» their intercommunication is getting more and more evident. Web presence turns out to be both means and imperative for the new forms of their program activities: educational projects, production of art works, critical analysis, theory of museum business, - all this requires revision and reorientation because of a large-scale introduction of the Internet and media technologies with their interactivity, dialogueness and globalness, into contemporary art.
How does the online art effects the audience which is similar to the one attending the «real museum» with regard to the number of people? How should be organized the exhibitions of the «virtual museum»? What are the functions of its curators? What is the meaning of the specific character of preservation and responsibility for keeping art pieces? All these questions have got, to my opinion, a direct connection with the development of «TV Gallery»'s site, which ideally intends to function as a new media art «virtual museum».
