Last December, Culturespaces and Barco announced a renewal of their successful collaboration that began in 2016: for the next three years, Barco will remain the exclusive provider of projectors for Culturespaces’ existing and future projects.
Founded in Paris, France, in 1990, Culturespaces is the largest private organisation managing public French museums and one of the key players in Europe’s cultural landscape. What makes Culturespaces’ art experiences so distinctive is the adaptive re-use of old public spaces and the transformation of these infrastructures into stunning giant video canvasses.
Bruno Monnier, CEO at Culturespaces, explained that the company’s mission is “to make art more accessible to a wider and younger public. With the creation of our unique inclusive digital experiences, based on video, music and interactivity, we want to invite visitors of all backgrounds for a fascinating immersive journey into the artistic universe.”
Technology is just a tool, but also an important factor for success
In the next three years, Barco will be the sole projection technology partner for Culturespaces’ world-wide digital art exhibitions. In the short term, the firms have agreed on the delivery of 168 new laser projectors and a service contract covering the entire equipment fleet.
Augustin de Cointet de Fillain, director of Culturespaces Digital said: “The quality of the digital exhibition depends largely on the quality of the projection. So we need the best of the best and Barco really stands out for us as they offer the full package. We engage and co-create with each other and look together for the best solution that reinforces the content and expresses the art the way we intended to.”
Barco and Culturespaces share the same vision when it comes to deploying stunning visitor experiences. Together they are teamed up to create immersive digital story-telling and dynamic multi-media exhibitions, changing the global museum experience forever.
