            Abstract

            Since the 1990s, a few traditional museums of art throughout the western world musealize Net Art, which is an important indicator of its artistic, cultural and historical value. Despite the respectability that it now deserves, in Portugal the initiatives that contribute to enjoy and understand art practices related to the internet are still scarce. Traditional museums of art have paid little attention to it, and barely any to artworks by artists and technology experts based in Portugal. In this paper I reflect about the absence of Net Art in these cultural institutions. I present the interesting case of Museu do Chiado – the National Museum of Contemporary Art first website and the online gallery Site-Specific created along with it, in the early 2000s. I then provide a context to the initial technological environment in the country and problematise the “gap of institutional invisibility” that the only interactive and generative artwork commissioned by a museum has fallen.
