Homemade Mango Chutney: Now Open

A huge thank you to everyone who joined us on Friday for the launch of Homemade Mango Chutney

We had over 100 participants on the night and lots of interesting questions and conversation about the exhibition and the artworks. 

Big thanks to all the RIPE artists and Isaac Fravashi who spoke to us about his banner commission, MOVE PAST THIS which has been installed at the back of the virtual arcade. 

George Thom, who built the virtual gallery space also joined us and spoke about his experience working on the exhibition:

“The creation of this virtual space has been a dialogue between myself, the artists, the virtual environment and the artwork. This space, although it appears to be akin to an installation of different artworks, is more a representation of artworks in an imagined space, based on reality. A physical installation would require a dialogue between artist, artwork and space. The added element of the virtual environment has transcended the work beyond its physical properties, back into the realm of the conceptual and imaginary, it is then presented to us via electronic impulses from the network cloud, generally known as the World Wide Web. Together we are witnessing the same dream, of a Virtual Alfred Arcade.”

You can now watch the recording of the artist tour and read back through the chat (where a number of questions were answered) and visit the exhibition yourself until 29th July.
