Join us for an art discussion series around the VAST/O exhibition every Tuesday in July, 1pm - 2pm. Book your place via the Eventbrite page.
These laid back discussions focus around a single topic related to the VASTO exhibition. For the first 10 minutes you will be welcome to walk around and look at the exhibition. This will be followed by a 10 minute (max) introduction to the day’s topic by Alexandra.
July 9: VAST/O – experiencing space
July 16: Graphic Medicine – comics and health & illness experiences
July 23: Medical and health narratives
July 30: Augmented and virtual reality in the gallery.
The VAST/O exhibition will be held in the Atrium Gallery, Poole House, throughout the whole of July 2019.
Curated by Carolina Martins, Natalie Woolf and Alexandra Alberda.
VAST/O aims to be an exhibition that generates the sensations of paradoxical spatial experiences by combining actual and animated spaces, through static and moving images. The use of comics panels in relation with a specific architectural space and the use of animation not only in its traditional channels, but also by means of augmented reality apps for interaction between viewers and spaces, will provide narrative layers that enhance the engagement of the experience.
This is also a part of Alexandra’s research project, so exhibition guests also have the option to share their stories of experiencing the exhibition for research in a short one-on-one interview. This feedback will be used in her PhD thesis as well as by Carolina in influencing the final exhibition in Portugal at the end of this year. If you would like to participate please contact Alexandra at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
