Step beyond the frames and into the world of the art pieces

· 3 min read

Within London's vibrant art scene, an array of galleries enrich the city's cultural fabric. Although the London National Gallery undeniably holds a position of renown as the most visited gallery in the city, numerous other galleries beckon, offering unexplored realms for discovery and appreciation. Among these, Frameless stands out for its exciting and innovative displays of art in a space that fosters creativity and innovation, taking visitors on an immersive and multi-sensory journey.

What is Frameless?

Rather than an art gallery, Frameless could probably be better considered as an immersive digital art experience. Located in London's West End, Frameless leverages projection technology to bring to life the masterpieces of some of the world's most renowned artists.

Conventionally, art pieces are framed and exhibited, and you, as the audience, serve as a passive observer. Through the use of projection technology, Frameless presents these art pieces in a spectacular and exciting manner.

Exhibits are presented in a multi-sensory and multi-dimensional manner, and you are no longer just a passive observer. Step beyond the frame, and into the world of the art pieces.

Frameless has four different galleries, each with a different theme, but all of them highly entertaining. And, all of them very Instagrammable.

The works are carefully curated and put together, matching the theme of each of these galleries. The overall experience is further enhanced and completed through the selection of musical tracks and accompaniment as you explore these galleries.

There are online guides available in 9 different languages, allowing you to find out more about the different art works as you journey through the gallery.
