MUVA launch on Oculus Quest
Starting today, MUVA is available on Oculus Quest. This launch makes the virtual museum the first cultural metaverse dedicated to classical art available to the public on this platform.
The MUVA kicks off on Oculus Quest with the exhibition ‘Rembrandt, Beyond Reality’. The portraits, five of characters from the prosperous cities of the Netherlands and a self-portrait, cover almost 40 years of Rembrandt’s production, showing the evolution of his technique. The drawings, as the beginning of his creative process, and the engravings, a fundamental part of the artist’s production, complete the exhibition.
According to the director of Binarybox Studios, Francisco Calatayud, “thanks to new advances in virtual reality devices it is possible to bring culture closer to the public in an immersive and high-quality way”.
“Being able to enjoy art in the company of third parties represents an enormous advance in the way of enjoying the MUVA experience, opening the space for the exchange of opinions and knowledge among visitors. Without a doubt, a step forward in the user experience” says Calatayud.
At the MUVA, visitors can enter this museum and walk among the canvases, drawings or any other content as if they were really there. They will be able to appreciate the different textures of each work and even get closer to contemplate them from just a few centimeters away.
This new version in Oculus Quest incorporates new online features so that users can visit the exhibitions together, as well as a complete user interface with all the extended information on the works on display.
This new version of MUVA, Virtual Museum of Art, is available from March 24, 2022. Additionally, it is also available for desktop virtual reality, Windows and Mac platforms.
