Virtual Exhibition: The Last Sentinels11 Jan - 03 Mar 2022
As the art world continues to adapt to our new virtual reality, the Jimmy Nelson art gallery is a digital art platform that offers the real – yet unreal – deal.
By opening up this digital space, Jimmy Nelson hopes to lower the barrier that exists in visiting art galleries. By creating an online space where everybody, on a global level, can discover and enjoy his iconic artworks in an innovative way, Jimmy Nelson wishes to spark a new inclusive art wave, in which accessibility for all is key.
Today, January the 11th 2022, the acclaimed artist Jimmy Nelson launches his new virtual art gallery, starting with a breathtaking art show titled ‘The Last Sentinels’. The selection on view is curated by the Jimmy Nelson Studio and features more than 15 art works, brought to life by an audio tour narrated by Jimmy Nelson himself. Running through March the 8th, this exhibition invites visitors to follow the footsteps of Indigenous peoples and to celebrate them as our new role models, while witnessing the awe-inspiring richness of the Indigenous way of life. The Last Sentinels is an all-encompassing art exhibition in a virtual reality that reconnects visitors to themselves, one another, and the natural world.
This is one of the main ideas behind the show. The Last Sentinels promotes environmental and cultural guardianship by immersing visitors into the world of Indigenous cultures who are protecting the natural planet.
