While some museums are closed again due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo’s usual weekly pick of exhibitions will include shows at institutions that remain open as well as digital projects providing virtual access to art and culture.
Marking 59 years since Joan Miró exhibited Blue I, II, III at Galerie Maeght in Paris, the Centre Pompidou has made the monumental triptych the focus of the museum’s first virtual reality exhibition. The paintings are on permanent display at the museum but due to their fragility are rarely loaned out – and now, with a second round of lockdown restrictions in place in France, this on-screen experience gives viewers local and international a chance to get up close to Miró’s triptych. The exhibition invites users to navigate a virtual gallery, in which artworks are hung beside photographs, captions and timelines that place them in context. Find out more from the Centre Pompidou’s website.
