As a part of The Hyundai Project: Art + Technology, 3D: Double Vision, presented by Hyundai, will make its debut at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) today. It is the first American exhibition to survey a full range of artworks, dating from 1838 to the present, that produce the illusion of three dimensions. The exhibition is open from July 15, 2018 – March 31, 2019.

3D: Double Vision has been an ongoing project since the very beginning of Hyundai and LACMA’s partnership in 2015. The exhibition will invite the audience to trace how technology and science has been unlocked within the history of art, and also, how art has been progressed through the application of technology. It provides a very interesting and at the same time scholastic approach to review the genealogy of 3D technology through art and mass culture.

3D: Double Vision invites the audience to dissect the complexities of vision and perception. Throughout history artists have experimented with theories of vision and perception to represent, distill, and reinvent objects and the emotions they engender. This exhibition underscores LACMA’s longstanding commitment to exploring art and technology in the museum’s exhibitions and programming. 3D: Double Vision brings together the realms of art, science, mass culture, and entertainment, and is a microcosm of Los Angeles itself.

3D: Double Vision

Featuring artifacts of mass culture alongside historic and contemporary art, 3D: Double Vision addresses the nature of perception, the allure of illusionism, and our relationship to accompanying technologies and apparatuses. The optical principle underlying all 3D media is binocular vision—the process by which our brains synthesize the information received by our two eyes into a single, volumetric image. More than 60 artworks featured in the exhibition activate this process by means of mirrors, lenses, filters, or movement—requiring active participation on the part of spectators to complete the illusion.
