26 Jun Acclaimed Invisible Exhibition at TMRW
This acclaimed augmented and virtual reality exhibition features five 360 VR films and 10 augmented reality artworks, which have stemmed from Season 5 of The Centre for the Less Good Idea that ran in the Maboneng Precinct in April.
Co-curated by Phala Ookeditse Phala and David April, the exhibition features traditional forms of art and performance re-imagined with the help of technology. The collection highlights the possibilities of merging the creative mind with the power of technology.
Using VR headsets, visitors can expect to see VR films from William Kentridge, Siyabonga Mthembu, Nhlanhla Mahlangu, Janus Fouché, Jonah Sack and more.
The augmented reality artworks will be presented through a specially developed app that’s been loaded onto tablets. Visitors can experience art from creators such as Marcus Neustetter, Mbongeni Fakudze, Fatima Tayob Moosa, Lady Skollie, Io Makandal and more.
TMRW is committed to extending the panorama of hybrid forms of art and technology.
From TMRW’s inception, we have wanted to commission work that is a reflection of our belief in the technology being in service of the art, and not the other way around. – Ann Roberts, Director at TMRW.
TMRW is located at the Keyes Art Mile and is open from 10:00 – 16:00, Tuesday – Saturday.
