Dissecting the infrastructure of immersive exhibition partnerships: integrity, technology and finance
Even before the pandemic, immersive experiences seemed to be on the rise. But now as venues look for more flexible content in the ‘new normal’, these large-scale experiences are opening at venues ranging from the Tate in London (Yayoi Kusama) to the Newfields in Indianapolis (Lume) to the American Museum of Natural History (Creatures of Light).
- How do these partnerships work, in practice?
- What about their business model?
- How do you make sure you walk that fine line between exhibition integrity, education, and entertainment?
- What technology, if any, is required?
Vastari interviewed two producers of immersive experiences within the science and art sector about these questions and more.
