A new museum will defy the lockdown to open its doors next month – allowing you to explore seminal works and celebrated contemporary art pieces in the world’s first virtual museum.
VOMA – the Virtual Online Museum of Art – is the brainchild of Big Issue Changemaker Stuart Semple.
He has brought together the best of new and old with the help of a global team of architects and curators as well as CGI designers, gaming experts and more used to working on Hollywood movies and blockbuster video games.
That will bring ground-breaking interactivity, Semple promises, with enterprising computing allowing millions of visitors to explore the museum at the same time, from anywhere in the world, and on any device – computer, tablet, phone, or VR headset.
The virtual conceptual space is designed to be used, interacted with and inhabited, insists the Bournemouth artist. VOMA a slice of culture that is missing while physical museums are closed during the Covid-19 lockdown.
