The Dali Museum in the heart of London's South Bank area is set to host an art exhibition from the Myst series of games later this month, in a rare collaboration between the art and videogaming worlds.
Running over the weekend of the 17th to the 19th of September, the exhibition will showcase artwork from the Myst series along with other elements from the development process designed to create an interactive experience that will allow fans to explore the imaginary worlds of the game.
The latest game in the series, Myst IV Revelation, will be launched at the exhibition - which is one of the few videogame art exhibitions ever to have run at a major gallery, with the only other example at a London gallery being a four-day showing of art from Sony Cambridge's Primal at the ICA last year.
The Dali Museum is located in the County Hall Gallery in the South Bank, next to the London Eye and across the river from Westminster Palace, and has shown exhibits of work from acclaimed artists such as Picasso alongside its permanent exhibition of the works of Salvador Dali.
"Dali's dreamlike and surreal landscapes provide the ideal backdrop for Myst IV's fantastical surreal world," according to Jenny Bidwell, head of marketing at the County Hall Gallery. "Salvador Dali and Myst both strive to push the boundaries and challenge our perception of reality. We are delighted to host this exhibition that provides the unique opportunity for the public to witness continued influences of the great surrealist."
Myst IV Revelation will be released in late September. The Myst exhibition at the Dali Museum will be open from the 10am to 6pm from the 17th to the 19th of September, and entry to the exhibition is free.
