Galleries Victoria Miro and David Zwirner have come together to launch a new extended reality (XR) presentation, “Side by Side” May 15. The group show of works by Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Stan Douglas, Alice Neel, Chris Ofili, Grayson Perry, and Franz West debuts on both galleries’ websites as well as on Vortic, a new XR app for the art world.
Victoria Miro and David Zwirner worked closely with Vortic to create an accurate and immersive 3D experience of the gallery spaces and displayed works, including photographs, ceramics, sculptures, and paintings. The galleries collaborated to create one cohesive and hybrid space for the works to be making it possible for collectors and visitors to peruse works like Chris Ofili’s Siren (2019), Njideka Akunyili Crosby’s Smooth and Good (2019), Stan Douglas’ Queue (2017) or Grayson Perry’s Searching for Authenticity (2018) from home.
The online-only presentation will be accessible through June 20.
