New type of online virtual art museum to debut this summer
The Online virtual art museum plans to be the world’s first fully interactive virtual museum. Online opening August 14, VOMA present exhibitions organized with flagship works of major institutions around the world, alongside works by contemporary artists and specially commissioned interactive pieces that use the VOMA platform.
âI think art should be for everyone,â says British artist and VOMA founder Stuart Semple. âThe internet is the most inclusive and democratic public space we have, and it’s about time we had a museum-style digital institution ready to inspire and connect public online with great art.
VOMA has collaborated with a team of artists, curators, game developers, CGI artists, and architects to create the completely free and fully immersive museum that anyone, anywhere in the world can visit.
Example designed the project and piloted the collaboration between the architect Emily mann, conservative Lee Cavaliere (who is the director of VOMA) and a team in the United States led by Crow and Michael who together have decades of gaming, CGI and network computing experience.
VOMA is more than just an online viewing room or a scan of something that exists in the physical world, Semple explains. And to add: “We are working on a magnificent amalgamation of thoughtful curation, visionary architecture, game design, CGI and interactivity of the global community. We are creating a digital institution capable of presenting art in a way the public has never had the chance to experience before and if we are lucky, a digital legacy that will live on for years to come. “
