Christie's Captures

SMART OBJECTS presents Christie’s Captures, an exhibition of 3D scans taken from the record-breaking Looking Forward to the Past Christie’s auction.* Prior to the historic bidding war, SMART OBJECTS' founder, Chadwick Gibson, covertly scanned over one hundred artworks while attending the auction's preview. The exhibition includes highlights of his virtual heist, including: Pablo Picasso’s Les femmes d'Alger (Version ‘O’), which became the world’s most expensive artwork sold at auction, and the world’s most expensive sculpture sold at auction, Alberto Giacometti’s L'homme au doigt. The works will be viewable via smartphones, as augmented reality models, by scanning AR tags throughout the gallery.
