Art Gate VR is pleased to announce the sponsorship of York University‘s School of the Arts, Media, Performance and Design (AMPD) with free exhibition space in Virtual Reality (VR). Covid shutdowns have closed classrooms, galleries, and important cultural spaces. Together, York University and Art Gate are re-imagining the idea of exhibitions with VR technology. The following information is for York University AMPD Program students and faculty who wish to exhibit in VR.


What is Art Gate?

Art Gate is an new exhibition context in virtual reality. People exhibit art, host events, and have cultural exchanges as they would in real life, the only difference is that rather than opening a door to walk into a gallery, people put on a VR headset. Real artwork and real people from around the globe connect in Art Gate VR.

-Join and host social art events with people from around the world
-Buy and sell artwork
-Connect with international collectors, galleries, and artists
