When the Kochi-Muziris Biennale announced its first iteration would go down in December 2012, location clearly limited access to the new art exhibition for most of the world. But now, the entire event has been digitized and put online, thanks to the Google Art Project. The biennale showcased 89 artists from 23 countries and spanned new and historic buildings in two cities: the more modern Kochi and the ancient Muziris. Digital visitors can wander both expanses in all their pixelated, fisheye glory.

The Google Art Project is a collaboration between the tech giant and many of the world’s top art institutions, including the Musée du Louvre and London’s National Gallery. 

A team shot the biennale over a weeklong period, using specialized 360-degree cameras and trolley systems. Check out the results on the project's website.
