METAVERSES: REALITIES IN TRANSITION

Exhibition and more activities at Matadero Madrid

The exhibition Metaverses: Realities in Transition shows until January 29th at Matadero Madrid’s Nave 0 a selection of virtual environments proposed by and for artists, mainly developed during the COVID19 international crisis as an example of new spaces of creation and resilience, and promoted by several international cultural institutions.

Five metaverses and an installation compose a walkthrough which starts with The Subject Changes, a work of generative art focused on a character constantly changing. Then we are invited to explore a virtual village in H.O.R.I.Z.O.N., to walk around a virtual landscape full of digital works of art in Planet L.E.V. Matadero, to listen to several sound artists in AFTERLIFE, and to enjoy club culture in projects such as Tivoli Cloud VR and Club Matryoshka.

UPCOMING EVENTS


Within the framework of Metaverses: Realities in Transition, we present a series of activities together with Matadero Madrid to continue exploring the infinite creative possibilities of a reality that is increasingly present in our lives.
