The pioneering collaboration between LG Electronics (LG) and the Basil & Elise Goulandris Foundation, titled “Art Meets Technology”, was presented at a joint event hosted at the Foundation’s premises in Athens. With this synergy, art enthusiasts are given the opportunity to “bring home” some of the Foundation collection’s most celebrated works; the latter will be available in Gallery Mode for all LG OLED television sets from 2021 and 2022. Further, the feature will bea available for all LG television models with webOS. The partnership belongs to a global initiative by LG Electronics, aspiring to join art and technology on a global scale.
Among the works from the Basil & Elise Goulandris Foundation, now available in Gallery Mode for LG OLED televisions, are: “Les Alyscamps” and “Nature morte à la cafetière” by Vincent van Gogh; “Portrait de l’artiste regardant par-dessus son épaule” by Paul Cézanne; “Nature morte aux pamplemousses” by Paul Gauguin; “Beide gestreift” by Wassily Kandinsky; and “Dynamik eines Kopfes” by Paul Klee.
Gallery Mode can be activated with voice commands through ThinQ AI, also available in Greek.
LG OLED ThinQ televisions, with a redesigned panel and advanced, self-illuminating pixels, offer exceptionally high sound and image resolution, and a unique viewing experience. Further, with their exceptional color reproduction technology, they achieve full color saturation, depicting the full DCI-P3 spectrum in the entire television luminosity range.
The event was greeted by the Chair of the Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation Board of Directors, Ms. Fleurette Caradonti: “This important partnership between the Basil and Elise Goulandris Foundation and LG, highlights the full potential of the meeting between art and technology. Works showcased in a Museum in Athens, lovingly collected by Basil and Elise Goulandris, can now travel the world through the LG television screens. This is unique” she stated.
Mr. Aris Koutelos, Managing Director of LG Electronics Hellas, noted: “this collaboration makes us very happy, since it is one more innovation record for LG Electronics Hellas. Our contribution to the showcasing of such important works on a beautiful screen, proves the connection between art and technology and testifies to its accelerating evolution, assuming new forms.”/
