The Infinite Museum
"The Infinite Museum" brings together for the first time in a single exhibition the two projects carried out by Antonio Pérez Río in the framework of two of Europe's leading museums: the Louvre (Paris) and the Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam).
The first series, "Masterpieces", is a visual essay on how mass tourism and mobile technology transformed our experience of art in the pre-COVID world.
The second project, "The Metamorphoses", is a museum generated by algorithms: a series of digital collages that remix the Rijksmuseum's collection and produce unexpected mutations in its works.
In short, "The Infinite Museum" is a new imaginary museum, a collection of strange works that reveal as much as they conceal; without the author renouncing the anachronistic endeavour in which the original works continue to beat: the search for beauty.
