Based on the headline (didn't notice this was linked to Pitchfork) I thought this was an article about moving away from the dominant white cube-model of contemporary art galleries and a return to living rooms. Because before the modern form of art galleries existed, expositions were in fact held in living rooms quite often!
The sites were built by people with deep connections in the scene(s), and already drive a lot of this activity.
1. Make English the default language, unless you detect the visitor's IP to come from a French-speaking country. Or viceversa. Point is: if you are aiming for a global website, showing me the language I don't speak is not the best way to go.
2. Replace the flag of the UAE for either the British flag or the one from the US. I mean, the UAE's official language is Arabic, so it doesn't tell me "English version" at a glance.
