HTC has just announced that they’ll be partnering up with Tate Modern to deliver unmatched VR experiences during the upcoming Modigliani exhibition – the first of its kind at Tate Modern.
The unique exhibition is set to open to the public from November 23rd, 2017 – April 2nd 2018. Included will be original VR content created by some astounding artists that take you to twentieth century Paris. The experience itself will draw on archival material and new research that brings history to life.
Paris was vital to Modigliani where he moved into the city in 1906 from Italy. Using the Vive headset, visitors will be able to delve into the surroundings that sculpted his art-form, revealing a fresh perspective into Modigliani’s life and influences.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Tate Modern on this ground-breaking exhibition, said Paul Brown, GM for HTC Vive. “At the start of the 20th century, Modigliani was a pioneering force in art innovation, pushing boundaries and new possibilities which inspired his peers and contemporaries. At Vive, we see something similar at the start of the 21st century with VR, and with Vive we want to revolutionise the way people create and experience art. Our relationship with Tate is another step towards bringing people closer to art than ever before.”
More and more art exhibits are starting to use the VR platform as an expressive medium where they can mentally take viewers into an immersive world dreamed up by the artists.
“We are thrilled to be working with Vive to bring a new and exciting digital experience to our visitors, said Frances Morris, Director, Tate Modern. “We are always looking to push creative boundaries and we think this will be a fantastic opportunity to give the public a different and in-depth understanding of this much-loved artist through new technology.”
HTC Vive is working with many artists and film studios today to push the boundaries of VR. Make sure to check out the Modigliani exhibition if you are in the area during that time!
