The new Louvre Abu Dhabi represents the single largest project for digital content creation in the mobile interpretation industry. So it is with great pride we can announce that Antenna will be producing 200 stops across the permanent collection. These will also include an interactive family experience, an adult experience, and an adapted experience for visitors with disabilities.
“This partnership is an opportunity for Antenna to pioneer the interpretation of virtual art and exhibits – and to connect more people to culture than ever before, through storytelling,” says David Falter, President and CEO of Antenna. “Our efforts on this project will play a major role in supporting Abu Dhabi’s mission to serve as a cultural metropolis and a meeting place for the world.”
Falter continues, “The mission behind the development of these experiences is to highlight the shared influences and mutual history of humankind. We want to avoid the isolation of cultures and disciplines to offer a comprehensive history of art, providing an alternative to the particular vision of the world that has long been proposed by museums. We’re deviating from traditional approaches and building an experience that will redefine the art of storytelling – even beyond these museum walls.”
The Louvre Abu Dhabi is scheduled to open in 2017. The museum will play a vital role in the cultural district currently being developed in Abu Dhabi, which is also expected to house extensions of the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi and the Zayed National Museum.
