A digital experience: 7 Works, 7 Museums

“A digital experience: 7 Works, 7 Museums” is a pilot scheme offering visitors the chance to enjoy works of art housed in museums in other cities through a digital, interactive format. The exhibition brings together digital reproductions in super-high-resolution of 7 works, each from a museum and/or collection:

  • Mauritshuis: The Garden of Eden with the Fall of Man, by Jan Brueghel the Elder and Peter Paul Rubens
  • Banco Santander Foundation: Las Bodas de Camacho, by Josep Maria Sert
  • Telefónica Foundation: Arlequin, by Juan Gris Statens Museum for Kunst: The Artist’s Wife, by Laurits Andersen Ring,
  • National Library of Spain: Portolan Chart of the Mediterranean, Anonymous
  • Basque Government: Zaldei, cave paintings from Ekain
  • The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum‎: Rue Saint-Honoré in the Afternoon. Effect of Rain, by Camille Pissarro

These digital reproductions offer a unique experience to visitors:

  • an incredible quality and level of detail (better than the level of detail visible in the work to the naked eye)
  • they’re navigable (zoom, move around, etc.) and are enriched with additional multimedia information
  • they’re presented on large screens, connected to mobile devices for visitors to interact with.

The initiative seeks to explore the use of new technologies as a tool for:

  • making the world’s cultural and artistic heritage available to citizens from all over the globe
  • offering new ways to enjoy art, ways that are more interactive and immersive, and also more understandable for your audience
  • demonstrating new ways of exhibiting cultural heritage, aligned with the most innovative trends in this field

Over the course of the experience, other complementary activities will be scheduled, such as exploration sessions of selected works, conducted by experts, and educational activities with schools, among others.
