London, United Kingdom Sep 8, 2021 (Issuewire.com) – Ars Electronica .ART Gallery Returns With a Virtual Concrete House for Festival’s 2021 Edition
This year, the Ars Electronica. ART Global Gallery 2021 returns in the shape of ConcreteHouse.art, pulling the viewers closer to inspect the vast and seemingly immovable digital architectures behind the landscapes that surround us. The exhibition hosts three partner pavilions and features over 120 artists from around the world, selected through an Open Call.
The immersive virtual exhibition is brought to life thanks to VR-All-Art. Their team has designed and imagined a seamless viewing experience that takes visitors on a 3D journey across the show. The partners’ pavilions feature.ART’s artist in residence Medina Kasimova, Boston Arlekin Players Theater’s new interactive experience ZeroGravity.ART as well as XRE’s The Portal | NYC Garden, co-curated by Vizmesh and Never Knows Better.
The key concept behind ConcreteHouse.art is the ‘human scale’. How do we highlight the pliability of our digital surroundings when they are endlessly complex and all-encompassing? How do we keep in mind the different perceptions of reality as the structures we build to meet a plethora of different eyes? How do we inspect our digital landscapes when we are so immersed in them, taking them for granted, passing through on our daily commutes without another thought? After the pandemic called on the society to quieten the day-to-day, forcing it to take a step back and view things from a distance, the audience now finds itself in a moment for re-evaluation. Before life begins to restart, now is the time to renovate.
The program of ConcreteHouse.art also presents two-panel discussions; Welcome to the Exhibition, featuring representatives from partner pavilions, artists, and project organizers, and Creators Economy: Unlocking the NFT Potential, a talk focusing on the use of NFTs in art with a deeper look at the legal underpinnings, royalties and licensing.
Opens 8th September at 18:00 CET – 23rd September 23:00 CET
