This virtual exhibition will be accessible :
🔸 online, via the Alexandria application available on Steam platform: for people with a VR headset
🔸 in situ, during the two events: for all
🔸 free access for all accredited NewImages Festival 2022
Michaël Swierczynski, Festival Director and Artistic Director:
“We are very happy to renew our partnership with Canned XR by launching an even more ambitious project, that makes these virtual works accessible in a world without borders. Alexandria brightly bears witness to the horizon of immersive creation while incarnating the home base of future arts and culture metaverses.”
