Where is the eternal expanse? Can it be found in a Tesla car orbiting Mars, an Oculus headset in your parent's basement, or a freeport in Hong Kong? This exhibition approaches the multiverse through the presentation of two virtual worlds in an effort to explore how escapism and fantasy can be used as critical tools.
The slippery slope between perception and deception can be difficult to navigate when spurred on by an escapist desire to dislocate the mind from the body. However, this exploration can allow fantasy to be used as a new perspective—like trying on a different pair of glasses. The computer, our allegorical window, can then become a portal to the multiverse.
As a part of our exhibition program, we will be publishing weekly interviews with all participating artists. Please check back for the latest interviews, curatorial essays, and a downloadable exhibition catalog.
