Artist Josephine Meckseper, former Belknap Visiting Fellow in the Humanities Council and Department of Art & Archaeology at Princeton presents an interactive multimedia installation, Scenario for a Past Future, at the Lewis Center for the Arts Hurley Gallery. Projected life-size for the first time, Meckseper’s virtual artwork, which she created in partnership with the digital arts organization DMINTI and architect Hani Rashid in 2022, takes visitors inside a modernist glass vitrine inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion and Bruno Taut’s Alpine architecture. Visitors will be able to experience and enter the virtual environment in real time at the gallery.

Exhibition presented by the Program in Visual Arts and the Department of Art & Archaeology, with technical support from Jacqueline Sischy and Sam Hillmer of DMINTI.
