The appearance of VR technology within the museum represents a moment of recognition

The Museum of Modern Art in New York will be showcasing VR as part of Slithering Screens, a selection of original films featured in the Sundance Film Festival’s New Frontier program over the past decade.

The exhibition will include a 15 minute VR experience by Lynette Wallworth called “Collisions”, where visitors will be able to step into the shoes of an indigenous elder from the Western Australian Pilbara desert as he recalls the devastation brought on by an atomic test. Other digital artists featured in the exhibition include Yung Jake, Miwa Matreyek, and the filmmaker duo James George and Jonathan Minard. In addition to live experiences, more than ten virtual reality works will be available on the Sundance VR app for Google Cardboard from April 25 to May 5.
