The concept of "a new format for everything and in everything", dictated by the outgoing year, has also affected the cultural sphere of our life. Progressive museums and exhibitions have given us a unique opportunity to wander through their halls online. Now you can join the beauty without leaving your home, right from your laptop or smartphone.
It is impossible to get around the Louvre in one day. It is considered the most visited museum in the world - people come back again and again to complete the planned cultural program in one of the richest museums in the world and the most famous royal palace. You need to get acquainted with high art thoughtfully, not sparing time and effort on it, therefore a virtual tour is an ideal solution for those who are used to running from hall to hall trying to "grasp" at least the general details of great works. The Louvre covers large-scale geographical and temporal spaces; it contains cultural works created by mankind over the past 5000 years. The museum offers its visitors the opportunity to virtually get in touch with the culture of Ancient Egypt, as well as learn the history of the building, stretching back as far as the 12th century.
Dali Theater Museum
Dali Theater Museum
Most of the creative heritage of the most shocking surrealist of all time - Salvador Dali, is presented in the theater-museum of the Spanish town of Figueres. Once the "genius madman" himself said about him: "The museum will not disappoint anyone!" and was prophetically right.
The site displays not only paintings by the great artist, but also sculptures, collages and even jewelry, created by him on his own using unique mechanisms, for example, a mechanical beating heart, decorated with a scattering of faceted pomegranates. Getting acquainted with the expositions, you immerse yourself in the extraordinary world of the creator, try to understand his way of life, the mysterious nature of his work. The virtual exhibition gives you the opportunity to explore 4 halls and even the inner courtyard - with a 360-degree view. But, unfortunately, this is far from all that could be seen by visiting the museum live. But the main thing is to start, isn't it?
Art should be the property of the whole world - this is the idea of the Frick Museum in New York, which contains a collection of works by outstanding masters of painting, including the works of David, Claude Monet, Degas and many other greats of this world. By the behest of Henry Frick, the museum does not practice renting items from its collection. This somewhat contradicts the fundamental idea of the museum, but, as you know, the owner is the master. And in this case, a virtual walk on the old oriental carpets of the museum is a great alternative to a cultural tourist tour. Online, you can feel like a guest of Henry Frick or even imagine yourself as the owner of a gallery house that once belonged to the Vanderbilts.
Van Gogh Museum
Van Gogh Museum
The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam will delight you not only with the world's largest collection of works by the famous post-impressionist, but also with the works of other artists - Georges Seurat, Paul Gauguin and many others. The visitor has several options at once to visit the museum online - either through the Google service, or through the official website of the museum, where the works of art are supported by explanatory comments. Everything is fascinatingly interesting: both in printed text and in video format. And what a difference to us, the audience - other people's secrets always excite us! And the bright and unusual design of the platform is a nice bonus. How can it be without him?
And what about Russia?
In early December, the re: Store chain of stores, together with the Winzavod Center for Contemporary Art, launched the first digital art exhibition in Russia, thereby laying the foundation for a fundamentally new event format. Digital Earth is an interactive exhibition modeled on a computer game: everyone can go to the platform's website, choose their own avatar and make their own route through an extraordinary, space-like virtual space. The guest of the exhibition is accompanied by caretakers voiced by artificial intelligence, and the sound for the space was created by the audio artist ITSU.
The platform makes it possible to plunge into the magical world of the creativity of each artist. In their works, young creators touched upon a variety of acute social topics: these are the stories of the life of small provincial towns, and the destructive human influence on the ecology of the planet, and the influence of self-isolation on our mentality, the feeling of ourselves in this new, still not entirely understandable world for us. The synergy of art and technology creates the present and defines our future. Every year the digital industry will absorb more and more of our living space, and virtual exhibition sites will make the "high" accessible and understandable to everyone.
