VR Pop-up: At the Periphery

Oct 11 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Maine College of Art, ICA at MECA, 522 Congress Street
Portland, ME 04101 United States

Virtual reality filmmakers Daniel Quintanilla and UnitedYES, working with the Yarn Corporation,
will be in the gallery to share At the Periphery, a virtual experience that explores the often
paradoxical idea of “visibility” as it relates to the immigrant experience. In this virtual journey,
one is transported to spaces occupied temporarily or permanently by immigrant communities
in Maine: a seasonal blueberry camp, a community farm organized by refugees, a takeout
Restaurant.

This event will be hosted in the Institute of Contemporary Art at MECA.
