HTC Vive Launch VIVE Arts Program

Once the exhibition opens on November 23rd, you'll both get an "integrated" VR experience if you visit the museum and a Viveport app you can use in your den.

HTC has announced Vive Arts, a "multi-million dollar" initiative created to help museums and other cultural institutions develop, fund and showcase art using virtual reality (VR).

A number of HTC's previous art and culture projects, which include a collaboration with the French National Museum of Natural History in Paris, are also set to be retroactively included in the Vive Arts program. Vive believes in VR's potential to share and engage with the world's most valuable treasures in a new and exciting way, and the company's latest investment will support the content, creators and institutions that embrace this new medium.

Joel Breton, Vice President at VIVE Studios said, "With the launch of Vive Arts, we are driving Virtual Reality's influence in art and providing access to our world's cultural heritage".

Over a dozen pieces of content from Vive Arts will be made available on Viveport will be made available from today. So far, the adoption of VR has been led by extremely expensive headsets, but that is beginning to change as the Vive price tag fell to $599 and the Rift dropped to $399.

According to Allied Business Intelligence Research Inc. market research, the VR industry will reach $60 billion worldwide by 2021. VR can have a profound impact on the way we interpret and experience art, and this is just one example of that. The majority are scenes and structures plain enough for modifications and incorporation into VR and AR experiences, but there are scatterings of some incredible virtual artwork there.

The first project to officially arrive under the Vive Arts banner is Modigliani, a collaboration with London's Tate Modern museum that will showcase its namesake artist's work in VR.

Breton said. "We are thrilled for the next Vive Arts' project with Tate Modern, and support their mission to increase the public's enjoyment and understanding of global modern and contemporary art".
