CAIRO – 16 June 2022: The Immersive Experience for Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence has announced that it will open an exhibition on Pharaonic King Tutankhamun using its technologies, for a limited time at the East Vancouver Convention Center in Canada, starting October 27.
The exhibition was developed in partnership with the National Geographic Society and commemorates the centenary of one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time: the discovery of King Tutankhamun's tomb in 1922.
Vancouver is the first city in Canada to host the exhibition “Beyond King Tut”. Tickets will be available starting June 16 at Beyondkingtut.com.
According to Mark Lash, one of the producers of “Beyond King Tut”, the show is the natural progression of immersive viewing.
“We have created more stories of immersive experience, including the experience of the exhibition 'Beyond King Tut,' which adopts virtual reality technologies, 3D displays and artificial intelligence, according to a story that includes a beginning, middle and end to guide visitors towards further discovery,” said Lash in an interview with the Canadian newspaper The Daily Hive.
“The exhibition has been created by a large team of researchers, painters, lighting experts, sound engineers, music composers, narrators, carpenters and more. They are a team of creative and dedicated people who are collectively the most talented I have had the pleasure of working with,” continued Lash.
Guests will meet ancient Egyptian deities such as Ra and Anubis before descending into King Tut's burial chamber and joining his quest for immortality.
