Nafasi Art Space is pleased to invite you to the exhibition Another Time, an interactive Virtual Reality Exhibition of artists from 6 continents, showcasing artwork made during a period of quarantine or self isolation.
All artists exhibiting in Another Time are part of the ‘Quarantine Residency’ project, an experimental online residency program connecting artists and curators from around the world, including Rebecca Yeong Ae Corey and Jesse Gerard as curators and Hussein Juma as one of the selected artists from Nafasi Art Space.
The VR exhibition can be accessed from 24 May on the website quarantineresidency.com.
The exhibition shows works from 30 artists from 24 countries and six continents. They have been selected from a total of more than 600 artists from 82 countries, who submitted more than 2000 artworks, in media that ranged from painting and photography to installation, new media and performance. The artists’ backgrounds and experience range from established professional artists who have been exhibited at the Venice Biennale, to emerging and self-taught artists for whom this exhibition will be their first international exposure.
There will be both a VR exhibition and 2D virtual gallery space. The VR exhibition will allow people from around the world to interact with one another in the space, creating a space ‘without borders’ for people to experience and discuss art. The virtual gallery gives the audience the chance to see the artworks with a high resolution and read the stories and experiences of the artists.
Beyond the Exhibition
The Quarantine Residency is an Online Artist Residency program. Selected artists participate in an online program of discussions, critiques and artists talks.
Gallery exhibitions of the project will take place with our partners in Turkey, Tanzania, Indonesia, Australia and China after the pandemic.
The QR team are also creating a “Quarantine Museum”, a digital library of the thousands of artworks and experiences collected during this time. Although the applications for the Online Residency have closed, applications for the Quarantine Museum will remain open.
