A project by MIRA Digital Arts Festival

The exhibition, which will be held on the 1st floor at Fabra i Coats Centre d’Art Contemporani of Barcelonand will be open to the public until 16 December, will include works by Brooke Candy, Carlos Sáez, Claire Tolan, Esmay Wagemans, Faith Holland, Field, Filip Custic, Keiken + Nati Cerutti, Kirsten Lepore, Maria Roy, Marie Munk + Stine Deja i Virgen María.
The underwater Museum Lanzarote ” Museo Atlántico” has been conceived as a place to promote education and preserve and protect the marine and natural environment as an integral part of the system of human values. Jason deCaires Tayor sends us a latent message in his work: the defence of the oceans. This museum project is creating a huge artificial reef made up of a series of pH neutral cement sculptures which, over time, will help the marine biomass flourish and facilitate the reproduction of species on the island.
Gilles Jobin has created the first ever choreographic work in immersive virtual reality. With VR_I, the choreographer invites the audience for a unique sensory experience. Equipped with virtual reality headsets, five visitors at a time freely navigate a real world inhabited by virtual dancers.
