Art Gate: A Brief Introduction

(“We now return you to our regularly scheduled programming…” 😉 If you are looking for my blogposts about the Wuhan coronavirus/2019-nCoV, please click here.)


Art Gate bills itself as “a virtual reality marketplace for collectors to acquire post-war and contemporary art”, and it is a social VR platform for museum and gallery exhibitions, where exhibitors can upload and display both two-dimensional and three-dimensional art. According to their FAQ:

Is it social?

Yes. You can see people from all over the world who are also exploring the collections via their VR headsets if you are in the public lobby.

How much does it cost?

Art Gate VR is free for the audience to download, explore, and use. For exhibitors, please refer to our pricing page.
