Before the internet, Salvador Dali conquered the world. Art fans will now be able to communicate with him in the metaverse. Thanks to the famous painter’s recent incursion into the metaverse, millions of art fans may now be able to enjoy the works of Salvador Dali without ever leaving their homes. A digital art exhibition of Spanish plastic artist Salvador Dal. The exhibition, dubbed “DAL CIBERNTIC” or “Cyber Dali for the English-speaking audience,” will showcase more than 200 of the artist’s works through the metaverse.
Visitors will be able to enjoy an immersive experience using virtual reality glasses, entering a metaverse where they will be able to create their own avatars and walk freely inside the paintings
Exhibition Hub, a company in charge of curating, producing, and distributing major exhibitions around the world, and Layers of Reality, an audiovisual production company specializing in creating immersive content, collaborated on the project. The digital interaction with the painter, who will use his voice to guide attendees throughout the journey, is one of the most realistic features offered by this exhibition. This new model of digital galleries offers something truly unique.
Jordi Sellas, executive director of the IDEAL Digital Arts Center in Barcelona, stated that the goal of the Digital Arts Center from the beginning was to create an exhibition that would be comparable to the “great Salvador Dali.” A dream that they may be able to realize with a project of this magnitude.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for art lovers, as they will be able to walk through Dal’s universe’s four spaces, which include the sea, the sky, the void, and the desert, immersing themselves for 15 minutes in his most striking works.
Although it is currently unknown which metaverse will host this project, it is without a doubt the first to “digitalize” the works of one of the world’s most important painters. We’ve already reached the point where art and the metaverse collide. Perhaps, in the future, the world’s top museums will be housed on the blockchain, democratizing access to world-class art to a wider audience.
