First Virtual Art Exhibition Space launched in Vietnam

The Vietnam National Fine Arts Museum on October 3 launched the first Virtual Art Exhibition Space (VAES) in the country.

Director of the Vietnam National Fine Arts Museum Nguyen Anh Minh said that the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, which prevented visitors from enjoying artworks directly for a long time, prompted the museum to develop the VAES.

The building of the 3D space started in 2021 with the cooperation between the museum and Vietsoft Pro JSC, simulating the real exhibition space.

Initially, it will host 10 exhibitions, including seven featuring collections kept in the museum and its branches in Ho Chi Minh City and Hue.

According to Minh, the opening of the space is just the first step for the museum to optimize the value of fine artworks and introduce them to audiences globally without any borders.

In the time to come, the museum will continue to complete and upgrade the space to ensure the best interaction and convenience for users.
