Wouldn’t you though?
Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Art & Museums features here.
Tate Worlds are exciting Minecraft ‘maps’ that create virtual environments inspired by artworks from Tate’s collection, and allows users to try various activities and challenges related to the themes of the artworks.
The first two maps are available to download today. Focusing on the theme of Cities, they’re inspired by Andre Derain’s 1906 painting of London, The Pool of London, and Christopher Nevinson’s 1920 painting of New York, Soul of the Soulless City. Yes, ahem, of course we all know those paintings intimately… *cough*
Anyway, there are six more Tate Worlds maps scheduled for release (on the themes of Play, Destruction and Fantasy – too obvious a joke even for me!) in 2015, so I’ll keep my peepers peeled for you. Come on, let’s force-feed those kids some flippin’ culture!
