The online exhibition of the Museum of Modern Art’s retrospective, “Gauguin Metamorphoses,” traces the artist's work across medium, theme, and technique, and provides a rare, interactive glimpse into the artist’s modern influences and processes.
This exhibition focused largely on his exploration across media, including many forms of printmaking that are far less known than Gauguin’s paintings and sculptures. Features such as the biography and timeline + map allow users to compare pieces across time periods and geography, gaining further insight about the work and the artist.
he site’s background image showcases details of three pieces within one of three themes, emphasizing the materiality and evolutionary nature of the work in the show. The user is randomly assigned one of the three themes upon visiting the site, which parallels the experience of exploring the exhibition.
