Time Out says

Escape to alternate realities at the ArtScience Museum's new and permanent gallery space VR Gallery. Outfitted with state-of-the-art virtual reality (VR) headsets and controllers, this is where the museum will be rolling out novel immersive experiences for visitors in the coming months. 

VR Gallery launches on July 10 with Hyperrealities, a VR exhibition featuring works from beloved contemporary artists Olafur Eliasson, Marina Abramović and Anish Kapoor. This is the first time some of them are using VR, augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality technologies to present their ideas. Nevertheless, these masters of art have you in for a treat: their multi-sensory artworks will have you gaping at elusive rainbows, feeling the visceral horror of rising sea levels, and taking a trip into – yourself. 

If you're craving a behind the scenes look at the curatorial and artistic process, don't miss the Expanded Realities talk series episode with Daniel Birnbaum, the Artistic Director of Acute Art, who is the collaborator behind Hyperrealities. Birnbaum, himself a leading contemporary art curator, will share all about his work with internationally renowned artists, and how Acute Art facilitated new works by artists using immersive technology for the first time.  

Hyperrealities will be at the ArtScience Museum from July 10 onwards. Tickets are now available at $12 (adults) and $10 (concession) for Singapore residents, and $14 (adults) and $12 (concession) for standard tickets. For more information, visit
