Modigliani VR Experience Transports Viewers to 1900s Paris

"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." 7/07/2017 3:15 PM Eastern

As part of the Tate Modern's major upcoming exhibition, "Modigliani," visitors to the gallery will be able to try a new integrated virtual reality experience right in the heart of the exhibition.

Headsets from the Vive will provide an immersive layer of interpretation as visitors are invited to step into early 20th century Paris. Drawing on archival material and new research, the experience recreates aspects of Modigliani's adopted city, bringing his historical context to life.

Frances Morris, director of the Tate Modern, explains, "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."
