In a time when so many are unable to travel to see exhibitions or visit fairs in person, the AR feature brings art to you, allowing users to experiment and ‘place’ select artworks either inside their own homes, or wherever they’d like to see the works situated. Below, we’ve outlined a few simple steps for how you can use this technology yourself, alongside some examples from friends of the gallery.
The works included are Rita Ackermann’s ‘Mama, Bon Jour Monsieur Bernard’ (2020), Ed Clark’s ‘Untitled’ (2009), Philip Guston‘s ‘Untitled’, 1973, Matthew Day Jackson’s ‘Ghost Bouquet V’ (2020), David Smith’s ‘Lunar Arcs on One Leg’ (1956 –1962), and Jack Whitten’s ‘Feedback Loops, II (The Curse of Ivan Meštrović)’ (2013). They will all be freely available to experience in AR for the duration of the fair.
