Join MOCA in celebrating the launch of Seeing the Invisible, an augmented reality contemporary art exhibition that includes thirteen AR works by acclaimed international artists. Through the Seeing the Invisible app, the project invites viewers to use technological devices to establish the digital works into existence and, in many cases, experience the way their own physical presence and environment shape the artwork.
MOCA will be hosting a six-week series of tours every Saturday from October 8 to November 12. Led by one of MOCA’s skilled Arts Educators, up to 30 visitors can join a drop-in tour that will meet at MOCA’s Ground Floor at 11:50 pm and 1:50 pm (first come, first served).
Tours will begin at MOCA and end at Sorauren Park, lasting between 45 minutes to 1 hour. Visitors are welcome to continue a self-guided tour to High Park where more of the exhibition is available to view, or to return to the Museum to enjoy the other current programmes included in admission.
Please note that to experience Seeing the Invisible you will require a smartphone and the app should be downloaded in advance. The app is available via the App Store or Google Play. It requires a phone with a minimum of 4GB of memory and Apple iOS 11 or Android 9.0 Pie (API 28) operating system and is GPS-based. It is recommended to download the app ahead of time and arrive at MOCA with a fully charged device and headphones.
