TRANSFER offers support for artists who are experimenting with new forms of installation and exhibition of Virtual Reality works.
The TRANSFER VR Commission is a platform for curatorial support to facilitate immersive public exhibitions of VR artworks in collaboration with residencies, galleries, institutions, artfairs, and alternative exhibition venues.
TRANSFER seeks to produce meaningful encounters with VR artworks in a rapidly evolving landscape, leveraging partnerships to further the critical discourse of virtual artworks in contemporary art. The program is specifically interested in supporting installations that expand the potentials for embodiment through considered physical encounters with room-scale VR, along with documentation and critical writing on the subject of VR artworks.
In partnership with Small Data Industries we are working to articulate best-practices for the acquisition, storage and stewardship of VR Artworks. All works supported by the commission are available for private collection through TRANSFER, and maintained as a part of the TRANSFER Archive.
