“Chambers of Wonder 3.0” at Gemeentemuseum, Den Haag

Gemeentemuseum, Den Haag, will open its latest iteration of “Chambers of Wonder 3.0,” with its goal to bring Modern art — both Contemporary and classic Modern art to the attention of a wider viewership. “Chambers of Wonder 3.0” opens on February 22, 2019.“Chambers of Wonder 3.0” is an immersive experience where young and adult visitors can engage in an inspiring world of fine art, photography, decorative art, architecture, and fashion. The concept, which in its previous years had won international accolades and awards, and had offered the Gemeentemuseum’s younger visitors an experience that is more than a traditional museum visit.“The museum game includes a unique mix of digital and hands-on challenges in thirteen thematic rooms based around an exciting new maze. Inspired by art, players set to work as designers, creating their own 14th Chamber of Wonder,” the museum says.“‘Chambers of Wonder’ really is a unique experience,” says director Benno Tempel. “An exciting new storyline will take visitors on an adventure, along with some ‘Wonderkids.’ They will be given tasks to complete — in Dutch or in English — via a tablet, and they will perform them in one of the thirteen appealing new ‘Chambers of Wonder.’ Eventually they will arrive in a completely revamped central section where they will find an exciting maze based on a spectacular design.”The players at  “Chambers of Wonder” will perform a number  tasks — from dancing with Mondrian, to thinking about the value of art and experiencing what it is like to shine on the catwalk. Each player will then be allowed to choose three inspiring works of art in and around the maze, and design their own (virtual) 14th “Chamber of Wonder.” The 13 spaces where the tasks are performed were completely revamped five years ago and will be updated for the new version.“It’s just like an amusement park, in fact, where a spectacular new attraction is added every now and then. That is what we’re doing now with the maze, in combination with a new storyline. I’m looking forward to welcoming lots of families, grandparents with their grandchildren and school groups to the museum, to experience ‘Chambers of Wonder 3.0,’” Benno Tempel concludes.“Chambers of Wonder 3.0” opens on February 22, 2019, at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, Stadhouderslaan 41, 2517 HV Den Haag, Netherlands.For details, visit http://bit.ly/2ifn3d5 on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the exhibition.  http://bit.ly/2BwSDJ7 Louise Blouin
