The project Museum Without Walls presents the proposals selected for its Virtual Reality Residency Program. Throughout Abril and May, the participating residents will develop different versions of the Espírito Santo Art Museum – MAES in the virtual reality Mozilla Hubs platform. The creation processes will be shared on this page, and the final results will be presented by the end of May, along with the new Museum Without Walls website.
The selected proposals are:
- Rigor Mortis
- The Space Expanding Room
Catalina Alvarez e Liz Flyntz
- Você é a encruzilhada das suas memórias
Garu, Pedra Silva, Rodrigo Lopes
MAES is situated in the Southeast coast of Brazil. Museum Without Walls takes inspiration from its recent reopening, after a long reform which recuperated elements of the museum’s original architecture while making the exhibition space much more susceptible to its surroundings. Amidst the global pandemic, the project invites us to examine how art institutions operate, both within and without their physical buildings, as systems for representation and discourse.
The project is funded by the Espírito Santo State Cultural Offices (Secult-ES) and counts with the support of the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and the Agnes Etherington Art Center, Canada.
