Alex Israel x Snapchat

The Bass Museum, Miami Beach

November 29, 2021 – May 1, 2022

Alex Israel x Snapchat is a unique collaboration between the Los Angeles-based artist and Snap. Invited to work with Snap’s advanced augmented reality team to expand upon his multi-disciplinary practice, Israel has created five augmented reality experiences, each linked to one of his Self-Portrait paintings. Five Lenses, unleashed in your smartphone, overlay Snap’s AR onto Israel’s physical works to give viewers an entirely new experience of painting. A site-specific sixth work leverages Snap’s Landmarker technology and interacts with the museum’s historic Art Deco façade. While Alex Israel x Snapchat debuted at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in 2019; this exhibition will unveil three brand new works.
