Culture and technology united by collaboration
The support for culture and its development represent for Samsung a fundamental pillar in its Technology with Purpose strategy . In this context, Samsung and the Prado Museum have been working together since 2013 to bring art to society in an innovative way, through the development of interactive and multimedia projects. Within its collaboration agreement, Samsung facilitates technological innovations to the Prado Museum to offer different activities and proposals that seek to change the way of understanding art, as well as expand the experience of visitors.
Samsung and the Prado National Museum have recently renewed this agreement, which will be extended over the next two years. The new agreement is another chapter in the long relationship of the technology company and the Spanish art gallery. Thus, the continuity of this public-private alliance represents an opportunity to continue improving the internal and external experience of one of the most visited art galleries in the world.
