The Inloco Gallery presents “Useless Palace” — a metaverse exhibition based on an art intervention in the Mleiha Desert, Dubai.
Experience the works of ten international artists whose creative work draws on street art and public art. The online exhibition developed by an interactive technology studio hptx on the Spatial platform, offers an opportunity to reflect on the essence of nomadism and the eternal search for home. This project recreates the site of an abandoned village where a group of artists stayed to create art inspired by the desert and the discovered artifacts.
The participating artists are: Filippo Minelli / Lokher / Neda Salmanpour / Anton Selone / Dusto / Maxim Ima / Turben / Xeato / Ivan Ilinskii / Sergei Kk
The exhibition will open in the Spatial metaverse on April 3. To visit the exhibition, you will need to sign up on the Spatial website, which is easy, and then choose your avatar. The gallery can be accessed via any computer or smartphone, as well as a VR headset. The exhibition space consists of three areas. The first exhibition hall is the gallery, where you can see more than 25 paintings, sculptures and art objects created by artists based on their journey to the desert. Some of the pieces are animated and can be brought to life by standing in a certain spot in the virtual space. You can invite your friends to the hall, arrange meetings and discuss the exhibition online together directly in the virtual space. The second area is the desert. Guests will be able to walk through the abandoned village listening to the sound of the wind, stumble upon a tumbleweed or even end up in a sandstorm. From anywhere in the world it will be possible to see where the artists created their pieces, how they transformed the abandoned houses and the swimming pool left in the middle of the village, and what art was created from the discovered objects. The third spot is the construction zone, where the documentary “Useless Palace” will premiere online (keep an eye out for the premiere date on the website), followed by presentations and meetups with the artists.
Exhibition virtual opening on the Spatial.io platform was on Monday, April 3 at 20:00 pm (Dubai time zone)
