Salon Real / Virtual
The idea was to include a virtual exhibition space in a real gallery. During the Corona crisis, we were looking and searching for new strategies to host shows and make art exhibitions accessible to the public. Therefore, a virtual gallery, which can also be visited in a real exhibition space, was opened:
SALON REAL / VIRTUAL
It is a fusion of the digital and real art worlds. The concept of the gallery as a forum for discussions about a virtually staged exhibition is juxtaposed with the classic white cube and at the same time questions it.
The first exhibition room was transformed into a cosy living room. As soon as the visitor entered the second gallery room, he/she stood in front of a big screen in the space, and equipped with a joystick he / she navigated their way through the virtual exhibition.
exhibitione from 2019 to 2022
From 2019 to 2022, twelve exhibitions have been curated for SALON REAL / VIRTUAL for galerie michaela stock at Schleifmühlgasse 18 in Vienna. Some of the past virtual exhibitions, are still online
As soon as gallery visitors enter the first exhibition space, called SALON REAL, nothing reminds of a gallery space anymore. Insight you will find a cozy living room with sofa, carpet, curtains, and a fireplace. The entire interior reminds us of a Salon at the turn of the 19th and 20th century.
Then and now, the salon is a social meeting point for intellectuals, business leaders and artists.
In the SALON VIRTUAL no more real artworks will be presented. Visitors explored the exhibition and artworks via the screen with a joystick. Although the visitors are still in the real gallery space, the exhibition is received virtually, in the “anonymous” white cube.
