10 visites virtuelles incroyables dans les plus grands musées mondiaux Après avoir poussé les portes virtuelles de dix grands musées européens il y a quelques jours, je vous propose une nouvelle sélection de grands musées à visiter depuis chez vous. On franchit cette fois les frontières de la vieille Europe pour faire un saut dans dix grands musées mondiaux. Certains sont très connus, d’autres peut-être un peu moins. Suivez le guide. Musée National d’Anthropologie de Mexico Allemagne : Alte Nationalgalerie, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin The Alte Nationalgalerie is the original home of the Nationalgalerie, whose collections today are divided between the Neue Nationalgalerie, the Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin, the Friedrichswerdersche Kirche, Museum Berggruen and the Sammlung Scharf-Gerstenberg. The idea of establishing a cultural and educational centre across from the Berlin Palace dates back to the time of Friedrich Wilhelm IV, who dreamt of creating a "sanctuary for art and science" on the site. The basic architectural concept for the Alte Nationalgalerie – a temple-like building raised on a plinth decorated with motifs from antiquity – came from the king himself. The building was designed by Friedrich August Stüler, a student of Schinkel who also designed the Neues Museum.

Le VOMA, premier musée mondial intégralement virtuel, a ouvert ses portes avec des oeuvres d’Orsay, du MoMA et du Whitney – Club Innovation & Culture CLIC France La pandémie du coronavirus a incité les musées et les galeries à repenser la manière dont les œuvres d’art et les artistes peuvent être présentés en ligne à un public plus large. Le samedi 5 septembre 2020, le Musée d’art virtuel en ligne (VOMA) est devenu « le premier musée virtuel entièrement interactif au monde » selon les mots de son créateur. Pour son ouverture, le VOMA présente 2 expositions virtuelles thématiques, accessibles gratuitement.

The Met 360° Project This award-winning series of six short videos invites viewers around the world to virtually visit The Met's art and architecture in a fresh, immersive way. Created using spherical 360° technology, it allows viewers to explore some of the Museum's iconic spaces as never before. Viewed more than 11 million times, this series affords an access and a perspective typically unavailable to the public. Viewers can experience the magic of standing in an empty gallery after-hours, witnessing a bustling space in time-lapse, or floating high above The Met Cloisters for a bird's-eye view. We strung cables, removed protective covers from works of art, and rigged cameras up high, all to allow viewers to explore The Met as never before. Get a behind-the-scenes look at how we created the videos in a Digital Underground article written by Director/Producer Nina Diamond.

Musée d'Art Moderne de Paris Dans le prolongement de sa carrière de mannequin, au début des années soixante, Sarah Moon commence à pratiquer la photographie en autodidacte et reçoit ses premières commandes. En 1968, sa collaboration avec Corinne Sarrut pour l’image de la marque Cacharel bénéficie d’un écho international dans la photographie de mode, dominée par les hommes. Elle façonne un imaginaire immédiatement reconnaissable au fil de ses campagnes, affiches et magazines. Les femmes qui peuplent ses photographies semblent suspendues dans le cours d’un récit où affleurent les références littéraires et cinématographiques. Le tableau Guernica de Pablo Picasso - Vidéo Arts et culture En 1937, le peintre espagnol Pablo Picasso peint l’un de ses tableaux les plus célèbres au monde : Guernica. Cette œuvre artistique, exposée au musée Reina Sofia de Madrid depuis 1992, a même eu une portée politique internationale. Pourquoi est-elle devenue un véritable symbole ? Que représente-t-elle ? Pablo Picasso demeure presque toute sa vie à Paris où il s’installe au début des années 1900.

MoMA The Museum of Modern Art, New York, United States Founded in 1929, The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in midtown Manhattan was the first museum devoted to the modern era. Today MoMA’s rich and varied collection offers a panoramic overview of modern and contemporary art, from the innovative European painting and sculpture of the 1880s to today's film, design, and performance art. From an initial gift of eight prints and one drawing, the collection has grown to include over 150,000 paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, architectural models and drawings, and design objects; approximately 22,000 films and four million film stills; and, in its Library and Archives, over 300,000 books, artist books, and periodicals, and extensive individual files on more than 70,000 artists.

National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C., États-Unis Founded in 1981 and opened in 1987, the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) is the only museum solely dedicated to celebrating the achievements of women in the visual, performing and literary arts. The museum’s collection features 5,000 works from the 16th century to the present created by more than 1,000 artists, including Mary Cassatt, Frida Kahlo, Alma Thomas, Lee Krasner, Louise Bourgeois, Chakaia Booker, and Nan Goldin, along with special collections of 18th-century silver tableware, botanical prints, and artists’ books. NWMA brings recognition to the achievements of women artists of all periods and nationalities by exhibiting, preserving, acquiring, and researching art by women and by teaching the public about their accomplishments.

Leopold Museum, Vienna, Autriche It took five decades to compile the collection. In 2001 it found its definite location. Together with the Republic of Austria and the Austrian National Bank, the collector Dr. Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid Founded in 1990 after originally being created as an art centre, Museo Reina Sofía is among the culminating events of the Spanish transition to democracy, recovering Pablo Picasso's Guernica as well as an outstanding representation of the international avant-gardes and neo-avant-gardes. In short, the founding of this museum means the recuperation of the experience of modernity previously missing from the Spanish context and the opportunity to try out new models of narration from a periphery that is neither lateral nor derivative, but is rather an entry way for new stories, historiographic models and artistic episodes that tip the balance of the orthodox canon of the main museums. The institution no longer considers its task to be simply the transmission of culture.

Borderless Bacteria / Colonialist Cash – Ken Rinaldo Scientists have identified up to 3000 types of bacteria on dollar bills from just one Manhattan bank. Most of the bacteria found were skin, mouth and vagina microbes according to a study conducted by the New York University Center for Genomics & Systems Biology. Bacterial cultures, fungi, and viruses finding transport on monetary exchange systems do not respect or understand borders. There are no visas or passports for microbes that hitch rides from hands, noses, and genitalia. Money travels freely nationally and internationally. Cash is a vector of biological cultures traded globally.

Galerie des Offices, Florence The Uffizi was designed by Giorgio Vasari in 1560 for Cosimo I de'Medici to house the Granducal Magistratures of Tuscany. Over time, the top floor loggia became an exhibition of the dynastic collection of ancient sculpture, artwork and artifacts. The eastern wing of the building incorporated the ancient Florentine church of San Pier Scheraggio and the wing to the west connected with two existing buildings, the Mint and the Loggia dei Lanzi. National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Séoul, Corée du Sud Since opening its door in 1969, the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA), Korea has lived through the history of Korean art. In the process, MMCA established itself as a representative institution of Korean modern art. The museum’s four branches, including Gwacheon (opened in 1986), Deoksugung (opened in 1998), Seoul (opened in 2013), and Cheongju (expected to open in 2017), each in its own way, will continue to carry out MMCA’s commitment to the art and culture of Korea by enriching the first-hand cultural experience of the viewing public. Boasting a superb natural landscape surrounding the site, MMCA Gwacheon will be devoted to various genres of visual arts such as architecture, design, and crafts. Located within a historical site, MMCA Deoksugung will showcase modern art from Korea and overseas. In the heart of the city, MMCA Seoul will focus on introducing global contemporary art.
