With the Start Art Fair successfully behind us, we embarked on our journey to the esteemed Books & Movies Festival, which was held from October 19th to 21st. Upon arriving at Armazém das Artes, we were met with the Artbox VR project. We arrived at Armazém das Artes with two distinct experiences: Artbox VR: masters of Fauvism and Artbox VR: Exclusible Icons.
Artbox VR: Masters of Fauvism celebrates the universe of the most famous painters of the Fauvism movement: Paul Cézanne, Raoul Dufy, Henri Matisse, George Rouault, Sigrid Hjertén and André Derain. The impulsiveness, purity of colors and the unparalleled genius of the artists transposed into virtual reality, in an exhibition with total freedom of movement. Twelve minutes of fantasy in which the visitor is completely immersed in the dreamlike and pictorial universe of the main names of the Fauvist movement, crossing different rooms where huge projections and animations of the works allow the visitor to feel completely immersed in the artworks painted by the artists in a second plastic, sound and sensorial dimension, vibrant and unforgettable .
Artbox VR Exclusible Icons exhibition – is a true masterpiece of contemporary art. Featuring the visionary works of Ashima Kumar, Catarina Diaz, Cecília Acevedo, Jamal Masarwa, Xinyue Luo, Kevin Trinh, Giovanni Trimani, Marina Emphietzi, Arista2099, Ildikó Baranyi, Shelina Khimji, Gulnar Sacoor, Barbara Lo Faro, Kwame Koda, Arobieke Tomiwa, Maria Imperatore, Raquel Gralheiro, Sónia Travassos, Lilly Helja Jonasson, Niko Kapa, Leonor Sousa, Jiayu Liu, Valeria Magini, Se Fenger, Abílio Marcos, Chien-Hua Huang, Lilia Luján and Harry Clinch. Each piece was a reflection of the artist’s unique vision and creativity. This immersive exhibition was unlike any other, bringing to life every texture, color, and emotion in a truly unforgettable way. Artbox VR is an exploration of contemporary art that simply cannot be missed.
