Expansions Are Happening At Wonderspace Philadelphia
Wonderspaces is the largest interactive art museum in Philadelphia. And many expansions have taken place. Located in Center City, Wonderspaces is right in the center of Philadelphia’s Fashion District.
If you are planning on going to the museum soon, you will be able to see the newly installed bar and new cocktail program, which features wine, beer and other selections with experienced Philly-area bartenders. There are also three installations coming soon.
There will now be music provided by Matthew Matthew called “On A Human Scale.” Matthew’s audio instrument combines music, film, people and technology and creates a portrait of humanity. Visitors can play 49 keys in a harpsichord. The voices of New York City come alive as you play each key.
The second installation that is coming to the show is a free exhibit in the main corridor that is between the Fashion District and the show itself called Before I Die. The exhibit is a global public art project that visitors can participate in. Before I Die, created by artist Candy Chang in New Orleans, reimagines our relationship with death and and with one another in the public realm. Chang made it after a loved one passed away.
The last new addition to Wonderspaces is a VR Installation Dinner Party created by Charlotte Stoudt, Laura Wexler, Angel Soto, Skybound, Ryot and Telexist. The VR Dinner is back by popular demand and takes people through their abduction journey.
With the new additions, this means the global art show at Wonderspaces has the most interactive artwork since Wonderspaces debuted in January 2020, according to a press release.
Wonderspaces is open on Thursdays and Fridays from 12pm to 10pm, Saturdays from 10am to 10pm and Sundays from 10am to 8pm. Tickets are still on sale, so if you are an art lover and want to experience something you never had before, be sure to check out Wonderspaces.
Based in California, Wonderspaces launched in 2016 to bridge the gap between artists and new audiences. With each show, Wonderspaces creates a place where people can connect with art and with each other. Their mission is to create shared understanding through shared experiences.
