In Real Life - ONLINE Edition

While most museums have temporarily closed their doors, they remain very active. A true testament that culture cannot be confined! We’d like to take you on a tour of the virtual and online exhibitions that museums and galleries are offering - from the comfort of your own home (we know you’ve heard that one before). Take a break from the news, enter full-screen mode, and start your art adventure.

If you haven’t had the chance to see the Keith Haring exhibition or if you would like to rediscover it, you can (re)visit it with “Walk with Me”, a walk with experts who share not only Haring’s infamous pieces, but also offer their two-cents about their importance. bozar-at-home

LISBON

MUSEU COLEÇÃO BERARDO VIRTUAL OPENING

Missing the hype around exhibition openings and the feeling of people milling around you? Grab a glass of champagne and join Museu Coleção Berardo for their first online opening of “Julian Opie. New Work”. People are the central theme of the exhibition, portrayed in various ways and with various materials; sometimes static, sometimes moving; sometimes painted, sometimes sculpted. In this online opening, Julian Opie takes us on a tour through his exhibition. Skip the first five minutes of the countdown and sit back and enjoy this extensive tour. Virtual-opening-julian-opie

LOS ANGELES

LACMA@HOME

Do Ho Suh, 348 West 22nd Street, 2011-15

In true LACMA fashion, this museum took it one step further by redesigning their whole home page, to welcome you with free and fresh content to consume during your lockdown. Watch, listen, learn, read, or browse, there’s something for all quarantine-types. Our tip? Check out Do Ho Suh’s amazing “348 West 22nd Street” installation.

NEW YORK

PLATFORM: NEW YORK

If the people can’t come together, at least art can! Mega-gallery David Zwirner has invited  12 smaller galleries (their friends, neighbors, and peers) to use its online viewing room platform “Platform: New York,”, from 3 April to 1 May. In bringing together these galleries, including 47 Canal, Bureau, James Fuentes and Magenta Plains, David Zwirner gallery acts as the “host” we all can’t wait to be post-Corona.

PARIS

LOUVRE CHEZ VOUS
