CFAT is proud to present our first ever Virtual Reality exhibition!!

Possible Worlds, curated by David Clark, is a showcase of work by artists who are asking questions about the political and personal potential of Virtual Reality as a unique and distinct medium. This selection of both international and local works shows how artists are using virtual reality to explore issues of cultural experience, trauma, history, memory and identity.

The exhibition includes works by Tender Claws, Lynette Wallworth, Illya Szilak and Cyril Tsiboulski, Seamus Gallagher, and Ross Unger.

Opening Reception: Friday, November 9th at 6:00pm

Exhibition open November 10th – 17th

Tuesday to Friday 12 – 5pm
Saturday 9am – 1pm
Port Loggia Gallery
1107 Marginal Rd.

Access Notes:

VR is not designed for the eyesight of viewers under thirteen years of age. Some of the works contain difficult themes and potentially triggering discussions. Gallery attendants will always be present and will have info available on the content of each piece if you wish to read it before viewing. Occasionally viewers new to VR find it may be triggering to certain anxiety conditions – please ask us if you’d like an attendant to talk you through the experience.

Port Loggia Gallery is ground level and accessible by wheelchair. There is no button to press on the entrance door for it to open automatically, however volunteer greeters will be stationed at the door for duration of the event to offer assistance.

We reserve the right to ask anyone to leave the space, for discrimination or violent acts, which include but are not limited to: racism, white supremacy, sexism, heterosexism, cissexism/transmisogyny, tokenism, ableism, ageism, sizeism, sexualized and all acts of violence and harassment.
