Didn’t make it to Kerry James Marshall‘s ('78) powerful retrospective? Thankfully, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles has your back. MOCA worked with a local tech company to document the popular Marshall exhibition at their Grand Avenue galleries as a virtual-reality experience, which is available to download for free starting today.
The young LA-based company, VRt Ventures, partnered with MOCA as part of an ongoing initiative to capture and archive artistic expression. The end result, which it is billing as the first ever “true-to-life” museum exhibition in VR, is centred around Marshall’s fantastic “Mastry” exhibition, which debuted in April 2016 at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, and traveled to the Met Breuer in New York before closing at LA MOCA this past July.
