In the midst of a pandemic that has restricted people’s movement more than anything in recent times, the world is coming to understand better the need for and dynamism of artificial and virtual reality as an alternative to live presentations. In partnership with Verizon, the Metropolitan Museum of Art presents “The Met Unframed” which is a new virtual experience that invites museum-goers to remotely explore digitally-rendered galleries populated by nearly 50 works pulled from its colossal collection. These include the works of contemporary artists like El Anatsui, Mark Bradford, Ibrahim El-Salahi, Sam Gilliam, and Carmen Herrera.
