Martine Syms, Sharon Hayes & Jon Rafman — Experience It — San Francisco, USA — 26 FEB - 26 MAR 2018
The Lab, 2948 16th Street, San Francisco, CA 94103
Immersive exhibitions that draw simultaneously on viewers’ multiple senses⎯hearing, seeing, tasting, touching, even smelling⎯are common in contemporary art today. Museums, galleries, biennials, and art fairs present work by artists who interweave objects, images, texts, sound, video, and performance into complex and enveloping environments. These exhibitions physically implicate viewers in orchestrated situations, in settings both inside and outside the institution, where art and ideas coalesce through the lived experience of space and time.
