sp[a]ce gallery at Ayzenberg is thrilled to announce its seventh exhibition, ROBOT REMIX. Curated by Mark Todd, Dov Kelemer / DKE Toys, Paisley Smith and Milo Talwani, this will be a diverse mix of mediums, bringing together VR, Limited Edition Art Toys, and an Immersive XR Series.
“This eclectic exhibition is expansive,
showcasing over seventy artists, each exploring the wide spectrum of what a
robot represents. From a fun and playful visually pop approach to more analytic
and somber notions, the artists’ work ranges from painting, sculpture, and
‘bootleg’ toys, to XR, interactive and kinetic art,” says Todd. “Some conjure a
nostalgic connection to these objects, bringing us back to the toys that primed
our imaginations. Others show us what the future may hold.”
Paisley Smith and Milo Talwani will be curating a ROBOT REMIX Immersive XR Series that will “allow people to see very clearly, other worlds, and I think this empowers people to look at the world that they inhabit in a new way and brings some excitement into their everyday lives,” says Smith. Talwani suggests “a billion ways that robots have entered our lives and entered our stories and entered our relationships with each other and with characters.” Smith hopes that people will “leave with a sense of fun and creativity and a curiosity for both the technology and creating future works.”
The first phase of ROBOT REMIX Immersive XR (Saturday, July 6th, to Sunday, July 28th)grants audiences exclusive access to 6 award-winning immersive experiences including Gloomy Eyes, Your Hands are Feet, Virtual Virtual Reality. Tickets are available for $25 and provide guaranteed access at reserved 60-minute time slots (12 – 1 pm, 1 – 2 pm, 2 – 3 pm, 4 – 5 pm, and 5 – 6 pm) on Saturdays and Sundays. Additional phases featuring more immersive experiences will be announced soon.
