- A virtual reality exhibition of Modigliani's work
- HTC Vive compares virtual reality to the work of Modigliani
Amedeo Clemente Modigliani arrived in Paris in 1906, started out as a sculptor before devoting himself only to drawing and painting. The artist was initially inspired by the work of Toulouse-Lautrec then that of Paul Cézanne as well as Picasso, at least from the artist's blue period. Modigliani was known for his speed of execution but also for the fact that he never touched up his paintings. His work, made mostly of nudes and portraits, is remarkable for its gazeless faces and stretched forms and will soon be on display in a virtual reality experience at the Tate Modern Museum in London..
Dive deep into the world of Italian artist Modigliani. This is the concept of this virtual reality exhibition created in partnership with the London museum Tate Modern and the manufacturer of virtual reality headsets HTC Vive. This virtual reality experience is not a first. Various diving experiences in the work of an artist have already been carried out on the work of Dali or even Van Gogh.
The virtual reality exhibition of Modigliani's work will open on November 23 for several months and should end on April 2 next year. This VR experience will allow the public to fully immerse themselves in the world of the Italian artist and to discover his vision of Paris in the 20s.. The HTC Vive virtual reality headset is undoubtedly the most suitable for this kind of immersive experience in the work of an artist.

For Frances Morris, director of the Tate Modern museum, which will host this virtual reality experience on Modigliani's work, the collaboration with HTC Vive is very interesting: “
