When Art Basel meets Google you can be sure to experience an artsy journey into the future. At this year’s Art Basel Hong Kong, which runs from March 23rd until March 25th, 2017 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Art Basel collaborated with Google Arts & Culture. Together, they created a futuristic project called ‘Virtual Frontiers’.
Art Basel selected a handful of artists to work on this pioneering project. The presentation of experimental work by renowned international artists boychild, Cao Fei, Robin Rhode, Sun Xun and Yang Yongliang, are created entirely with Tilt Brush by Google, a 3D drawing and painting application.
Google Arts & Culture invited these five artists to attend multiday residencies in Beijing and Paris to work for the first time with Tilt Brush by Google. Tilt Brush is a new drawing and painting application that lets you paint in 3D space using virtual reality technology. Your room is your canvas, your palette is your imagination. Tilt Brush allows you to paint life-size three-dimensional brush strokes, stars, light, and even fire. And that’s exactly what these artists did.
During Art Basel Hong Kong 2017, visitors will be able to explore five new virtual reality works that were individually created by each artist.
