ROBOT REMIX: Immersive XR Series

Exhibition
July 6 – September 8, 2019

The first phase of ROBOT REMIX Immersive XR Series grants audiences exclusive access to award-winning immersive experiences, including Gloomy Eyes, Your Hands are Feet, Unceded Territories, and Virtual Virtual Reality. Tickets are available for $15 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.

The ROBOT REMIX Immersive XR Series is curated by Paisley Smith and Milo Talwani. Smith says the XR series 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.” 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.”
