Looking for a bit of escapism? Check out Submerge by ARTECHOUSE, which is a new series of surreal immersive experiences that are set to take place in DC, NYC and Miami; inspired by earth, water and air, each location will focus on a different elemental experience related to Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year, Classic Blue.
Crystalline in DC explores the color’s connection with earth and crystals “through a journey that is both an adventure and a contemplation—an exploration through an illusory, blue-hued castle.” Meanwhile, the NYC installation, Celestial, “draws on Classic Blue’s inspirational qualities to take visitors beyond the skies”, and Miami’s Aqueous, inspired by Classic Blue’s calming qualities, “explores the color in the context of water.”
In all three locations, virtual portals will give visitors a window into the other locations, creating a sense of community and connection in spite of geographical distance.
Crystalline in DC will be on view from October 15th, 2020 to January 3rd, 2021. Book advance tickets here.
Celestial in NYC will be on view from October 22nd, 2020 to January 3rd, 2021. Book advance tickets here.
