ART GALLERY- A display or a series of rooms wherein art is exhibited.
What is so special about the spaces that are exclusively displaying the creation of somebody else? And why is it important to display the same so intricately and symbolically? It is because art is the language of the mind and body and the soul.
Art is something that unites us and makes us wonder. Museums all around the world try to display all such wonderful pieces of art and their history to make sense of this separate community of human expression and some of the greatest art galleries in the owls are not about their art as much as they are about its spectacular architecture.
From ceilings and roofs to open space exhibitions, there are a number of concerns in the mind of an architect and engineer to grant the standards of an art gallery. This is an exclusive domain of their work.
So here are some of the standalone art galleries of the world that are just as artistic as the art inside of them :
l’Atelier des Lumieres, Paris
The work of digital art is to decompartmentalise art. The traditional display of art in frames and over the walls has been reformed into a more overall cathartic experience to break the frames and indulge in the beauty of art in the whole room. l’Atelier des Lumieres in Paris is the display of digital art in the display of over 120 projectors of the famous art of Gustave Klimt’s work that was inaugurated in 2018 to make a marvel of the art of the famous artist. It has easily become one of the most visited art galleries in the world and has been a major distiller of eras and the dynamism of art galleries.
Musee d’Orsay, Paris
Musee D'Orsay is a French art museum located adjacent to the Seine River in Paris, France. The former Gare d'Orsay railway station was converted into a museum in 1986.
The Gare d’Orsay station was the main station for the south-western French railroad network. It included 16 underground rail tracks and modern facilities, such as ramps and lifts. The main feature of the station is the great hall, which is 32m high, 40m wide and 138m long. The museum is spread over three levels, the ground floor, middle level and top floor. Exhibition spaces, galleries and other facilities are spread over these three levels. These include the pavilion Amont, the glass walkway, the museum restaurant, the Café, the bookshop and the auditorium.
Guggenheim, Bilbao, Spain
Designed by the famous Canadian architect Frank Gehry, the Bilbao is situated in Basque, Spain. The building is famously called “ the signal moment in architect culture” as it represents those rare occasions where art, culture, academics and the people come together to unite in the building. The exterior glass and metal facade of the building looks abstract and folds outward like a flower almost blooming. The curves catch the light. The building is made on the Nervion river that giving the modern street look. Its interiors are divided into 19 galleries in the orthogonal floor plan and the facade itself is made from a titanium base that replaces the harmful copper and lead.
MASP, Sāo Paulo, Brazilthe
art gallery was founded by Brazilian businessman Francisco de Assis Chateaubriand, in 1947. Bardi wanted the museum to be accessible to the general public regardless of the misconception of the place being a niche to art lovers so Bardi renamed it to ‘museum of art’. Lina Bo Bardi used glass and concrete to create a building that almost seems to float in the air. The main building is suspended on two large concrete beams that are set on the base building. Not only does this give the building a greater sense of light and space, but it also creates an open public plaza underneath. Known as the “free span”, Lina Bo Bardi designed this area beneath the galleries to serve as a public square for the community to gather, give shelter and shade, and host public events.
Natural Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, South Korea
Since opening its door in 1969, the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA), Korea has lived through the history of Korean art. In the process, MMCA established itself as a representative institution of Korean modern art. The museum’s four branches are all representative of the different Korean places. The motif of the architecture is that of a traditional Korean fortress and beacon mound, and the building has a unique spiral-formed interior where Dadaigseon, one of the most famous video artworks by Nam June Paik, is located.
