This virtual exhibition features blue-chip artists Banksy, Jeff Koons and Kaws
Artcels, a digital art investment platform based in London, will host a virtual exhibition by some of the world's best-known contemporary artists from May 4 to May 18.
The COVID-19 pandemic has cut off face-to-face interactions, causing various industries to look at alternative digital spaces. With public spaces being shut, the art industry has also pivoted to staging exhibitions virtually online.
Artcels, a digital art investment platform based in London, in partnership with HOFA Gallery, has announced that it will host a virtual exhibition of masterpieces by some of the best-known contemporary artists. The show, dubbed XXI, is set to be the first-of-its-kind to feature blue-chip contemporary artists – including Banksy, Damien Hirst, George Condo, Jeff Koons and Kaws – in a virtual art exhibition.
Taking place from May 4 to May 18, XXI will showcase the artists’ works in a three-dimensional, high-definition format that is immersive, interactive and realistic. Works include Red Rabbit by Jeff Koons, Strawberry Donut by Banksy, and Blame Game, a portfolio of 10 prints by Kaws.
Speaking of the forthcoming virtual show, Elio D’Anna, co-founder of Artcels said, “It’s the very first time an art portfolio of this calibre has ever been presented as a virtual exhibition, and we’ve used the latest capturing and rendering technology, guaranteeing a true-to-life experience. During this difficult time, we are hoping this exhibition will bring some relief to those in isolation and be a bright spot to all art lovers across the globe.”
The virtual XXI exhibition will also offer viewers the opportunity to invest in the carefully curated art portfolio.
