“Portraits of Brief Encounters” is a one night immersive gallery-game taking place tonight at This Open Space. Fifteen visual artists created original work based on stories written by Cole Nowicki. It’s part art show, and part game (my favourite part).
Upon entering the gallery you receive a story book with fifteen short tales. Read these stories carefully. Walk around the space and match them to the visual interpretations on the walls. Work with others in the gallery, write your answers on the back of the book and hand it in for grading.
Each correct answer gets you $5 off a piece of original artwork at the show (so you can save up to $75 off an artwork). $5 gets you into the game with a story book, a raffle into the grand prize, and even a souvenir bookmark. The grand prize ‘Portraits of Brief Encounters’ book is signed by all artists and includes 15 prints with accompanying stories.
The artists were curated by Elliat Albrecht, and the game concept was developed by Yash Nijati. It sounds like it will be a fun show!
