In collaboration with Burggasse 98´s EXIST – Design Days and VIENNA DESIGN WEEK 2018, Artivive AppOxymoron and Improper Walls are organising an OPEN CALL based group exhibition – REALITIES. REALITIES is a showcase for art in augmented reality (AR). The exhibition is powered by Artivive App, which is an easy to use tool for artists to create art in AR, with the simple goal of encouraging people to get out and experience art first hand in a new and interactive way.

Exhibition runs from 01.10. - 06.10.2018

REALITIES
How do AR, VR and MR collide with our RR (Real Reality)? The group art exhibition REALITIES asks artists to reflect on our perception of reality; how the attributes, feelings, and knowledge taken from “this” reality to “another” transform, modify, or stay the same. What happens if we merge realities and they overlap? This open call invites artists to touch on the topics of: love, humanism, digital world, video games, place, country, Vienna, specific location, etc.

• The OPEN CALL will be launched on the 16th of July, and will be closed on the 18th of August.
• Artists will be selected by the curators from Oxymoron and Improper Wallsgalleries. The aim is to select 25 international artists touching on these questions about reality in the most diverse contexts and approaches.
