The Nude Museum is a series of curated interactive virtual reality exhibitions that showcase a private collection of nude photography in the desert, on mars, and in a gallery setting. The Nude Museum is an exploration into how we can view and engage with art that is not physically displayed. Virtual reality provides an experience of viewing the art itself that lies somewhere between seeing it in person and seeing it as a jpeg on a 2D screen. It adds an otherworldly layer where the photos are curated with their environment and the experience is interactive. Approaching a photo triggers an audio story about the piece, by the artist, their gallerist or from someone knowledgeable about it.

As if it needs explanation, the practice involves hordes of nude patrons gazing upon a museum's offerings sans clothing. The tours usually take place after hours, when the "skyclad" spectators -- that's the official modifier for nude art tour enthusiasts -- can soak up masterpieces without the prying eyes of more puritanical admirers.

Renaissance artists transformed the course of western art history by making the nude central to their art. Drawing inspiration from classical sculpture and the study of the live model, these artists created lifelike, vibrant, and sensual representations of the human body. This exhibition has been organized by the J. It is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities. Generously supported by Jeffrey P.
