EXLAB is an experimental art lab that curates freeform experiences through new media, digital art forms and experimental performances. Their core ethos is to create a new visual paradigm of existence architecture,                                                              whilst shifting between real and virtual exhibitions. Exploring a momentary escape into multidisciplinary realms whilst unterlising new art environments.

Through ambitious projects EXLAB enables their audience to orbit and explore non-linear realities.

Exlab exploration projects include:

Future art energy

The space in between life & death

Totems of reality

The economics of an autonomous society

We have an innovative approach to visionary new media and identifying exciting opportunities for artists to produce visionary projects and conceive unique public art experiences.

Physically Digital

A four-week exploration of the digital in a physical setting, During the several lockdowns we have gone through, we have been invited to experience art that was meant to be delivered physically in the digital landscape.                                                                It has pushed emerging artists to shift their studios into their laptops. The lockdown has questions how we use our body especially as artists. Exlab is a space that allows us to reconsider the screen as a space,                                                                                  the browser as a material and the user as a viewer.
