Description:

We may not return to museums for a while, but curators and artists alike have made a new digital discovery: the exploration of art through XR.

XR is creating a whole new form of art exhibition. With this interactive technology, we can step into a virtual world of design, creativity, and innovation like never before. 

Not only is XR changing the UX, but it’s inspiring the way artists approach digital design. XR, coupled with 5G connectivity, has the power to create a whole new viewing experience, appealing to a whole new set of senses, and even making art more accessible, eliminating monetary, and physical barriers to entry.

With this new digital canvas, artists have unlocked a world of possibilities.

Join us as we hear from innovation curators, immersive artists, and interactive galleries about the potential that XR & 5G have unlocked in the art world.
