Christie’s uses hologram technology to take a $20m Degas sculpture on tour

Daniel Cassady of The Art Newspaper In the UK broke the news that Chrsitie’s is touring the Degas bronze Petite Danseuse using Proto hologram devices ahead of its auction with the blockbuster Anne Bass collection in May. The tour started in London before opening to crowds in San Francisco and Hong Kong. Touring the precious object via hologram eliminates the risk of transportation and expenses and carbon damage associated with shipping. “And while it isn’t actually there,” Cassady writes, “Visitors can experience the work just as if they were in Anne Bass’s storied New York City apartment.”
