OPEN MARCH 4 – SEPT. 10, 2023
Seeing the Invisible is the most ambitious and expansive exhibition to date of contemporary artworks created with augmented reality (AR). Developed by The Jerusalem Botanical Gardens in partnership with Outset Contemporary Art Fund as a joint venture among botanic gardens around the world, the exhibition spans six countries and features works by more than a dozen international artists, including Ai Weiwei, Refik Anadol, El Anatsui, Isaac Julien CBE RA and Mohammed Kazem.
Visitors are invited to actively locate the artworks scattered throughout the Wildflower Center, using a smartphone or tablet. The AR nature of the exhibition allows for the creation of immersive works that engage with existing features of the natural landscape. By setting these digital experiences inside botanic gardens like ours, Seeing the Invisible addresses themes of sustainability and explores the connections between art, technology, and nature. Learn more about the exhibition in our Pressroom.
Seeing the Invisible opens at the Wildflower Center on March 4, 2023. The exhibition is included with general garden admission and accessible through the Seeing the Invisible app, available for iPhone and Android via the App Store and Google Play.
