Immersive Design Reality Mixer: Launch

Join Gray Area for the launch of our Open Call for immersive art experiences.

6pm - 8pm

Free with RSVP

Gray Area together with Knight Foundation has just announced an Open Call for creating immersive art experiences that radically redefine our integral role within the environment. On May 30, we will host the first of two Immersive Design Reality Mixers to answer any questions about the Open Call and Research Lab, and to create a space for artists to meet potential collaborators for our Research Lab Incubator.

The evening will be informal — learn more about the Research Lab from the Gray Area team, and mingle with other creative minds over drinks at the bar. Join us for drinks, good music and good company as we discuss all things which are adjusting our Reality.

Program Overview

The Experiential Space Research Lab is focused on exploring the possibilities of immersive art and design as a critical thinking tool for pressing issues of our time, as well as a sustaining revenue stream for new media artists. The six-month Incubator program provides two teams of artists with seed funding, mentorship, and a final exhibition at Gray Area.

We encourage media artists with an entrepreneurial spirit and social-minded vision to apply. In the Incubator, we will work together to prototype, develop, produce and market an experiential space which can tour to other locations.

We welcome applications from Individual Artists and Collectives, and encourage artists to meet potential collaborators at our Immersive Design Reality Mixers.

Immersive Design Reality Mixer: Launch: May 30, 6-8pm
Immersive Design Reality Mixer: Showcase Closing: June 20, 5-7pm
