The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), North Miami is bringing virtual reality to Miami with the solo exhibition “How to Unlock a Portal” by Swedish photographer Jacob Felländer! In celebration of Art Basel Miami Beach 2017, the exhibition will be on display from Dec. 7, 2017 – Feb. 11, 2018 with a special artist reception on Wednesday, Dec. 6 from 7-11 p.m.
Felländer is making his U.S debut with a groundbreaking exhibition that represents the artist’s creative journey over the past 15 years. Traveling through a fusion of painting, photography, sculpture and virtual reality, Felländer captures not one frozen moment in time, but rather several moments expanded in time and space.
“The Brave Frontier” allows guests to enter inside the artwork, made possible by virtual reality goggles. Felländer takes the process a step further and creates portal prints – images taken inside this virtual landscape and then brought back into the real world. The experience ends with a portal print that is brought to life with a 3D printer.
An artist reception will take place on Wednesday, December 6, from 7–11 p.m. with an admission cost of $30 to the general public, free to Art Basel Miami Beach VIP ticket holders, MOCA members and North Miami residents.
