Interactive Exhibitions

Interactive exhibitions are installations that engage the viewer through interactive experiences, such as touchscreens, augmented reality, and virtual reality. They offer a unique way for viewers to engage with the art and experience it in a more immersive way.

Some successful interactive exhibitions include the Rain Room by Random International, which uses motion sensors to create a controlled rain experience, and the Infinity Rooms by Yayoi Kusama, which use mirrors and LED lights to create an immersive and otherworldly experience.

Virtual Reality in Art Museums

Virtual Reality technology creates a computer-generated environment that simulates a physical presence in a real or imagined world. It can provide a unique and immersive experience for viewers, as well as offer new ways for artists to showcase their work.

Some examples of art museums using Virtual Reality technology include the Museum of Other Realities, which is a fully immersive VR experience that showcases digital art, and the Tate Modern's Modigliani VR experience, which allows viewers to experience the paintings of Amedeo Modigliani in a completely new way.
