On the platform of the Academy of Culture of Google appeared the first museum of the Far East

The National Art Museum of Yakutia was one of the first in Russia to launch a virtual exhibition on the platform of the Google Culture Academy.

The first attempt to promote the Yakut museum on the platform of the Google Academy of Culture, according to Aleksey Ivanov, curator of the project "Culture of Yakutia in the World," was made since the launch of the Internet portal Google Art Project back in 2011. Initially, it featured only 1000 paintings from 17 museums. Now the online gallery Google (Google Art Project) has about 6 million archived photographs, 70 thousand photographs of expositions that can be viewed in great detail (gigapixel paintings), more than 400 cultural institutions from 40 countries participate. The project includes works from such world famous museums and galleries as the Old National Gallery in Berlin (Germany), the Metropolitan Museum in New York (USA), the National Gallery of London (UK), the Uffizi Gallery in Florence (Italy), the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam (Netherlands) and many others.

However, the museum was able to achieve concrete results only in the summer of last year, when the museum took an active part in the 16 International Festival "Intermuseum - 2014", where it was possible to personally meet and communicate with Luizella Mazza, the head of the Google Cultural Academy program for Brazil, Italy and Russia.

And now the National Art Museum of Yakutia is one of the first and so far the only participant in the project of the Google Culture Academy in Siberia and the Far East of Russia. Currently, the platform presents the exhibition "Rhythms of nomadic cultures." The nearest virtual exhibition will be dedicated to the 70 anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War. Also this year, an exhibition is planned within the framework of the Year of Literature and an exhibition dedicated to the Decade of Olonkho.

This platform is very convenient - explains the curator of the project "Culture of Yakutia in the world space." In the future, it will allow the creation of mobile versions of exhibitions. At the same time, negotiations on the creation of virtual tours around the museums of Yakutia based on Google Street View technology (the city using the same technology has already been photographed and launched at 2014 http://news.ykt.ru/article/17969) will be blown up. Such modern technologies allow to solve problems of transportation, accessibility and safety of exhibits, for which the art museum of Yakutia is immensely grateful to the office of Google in Moscow and personally to Luizelle Mazza.

"In itself, the fact that the museum will build relations with the Academy of Culture Google - meaningful and eventful. In this way we expand the cultural space and ties of the Republic with the whole world. We are pioneers in this matter, which, of course, is important and prestigious ", - commented EastRussia Director General of the National Art Museum of Yakutia.
