Liminality: A Mixed Reality Exhibition of Second Life Art

@ Antena

1765 S Laflin St, Chicago, IL 60608

Opening Friday, April 2nd, from 6PM - 10PM

On view through Saturday, May 1st

Liminality describes the nature of being “in-between;” neither here nor there – or perhaps here and there. This exhibition explores the nature of liminality though examining work from the virtual world, Second Life, and its dialogues with issues of physicality via an exhibition at Antena Gallery, Chicago and on I Am Columbia Island in Second Life. The show will include objects, mixed reality performance, video, print and virtual installation in either physical, virtual or mixed-reality forms. What is the nature of art when it emerges in virtual worlds, and what happens when it attempts to emerge into physicality, and vice versa? What is the nature of presence in virtual art? How does it make us feel? This is the aim of this exhibition.

Work by Gazira Babeli, Scott Kildall, Patrick Lichty/Cao Fei and Janell Baxter.

Unconditional Love by Jessica Westbrook and Adam Trowbridge in the Project Wall Space.
