No, there is a moderator during critiques who gives their feedback along with the rest of the group. Critiques are a fundamental way for artists to receive feedback from a selected group of qualified peers.
The exhibitions in The Salon and The Salon des Refuses are open for 1 month after the residency.
The artists work as a group to curate the exhibition in The Salon. The Salon des Refuses is uncurated.
A general understanding of moving around in a virtual reality space or a video game is useful but not required. LAC is very simple and requires uploading artwork and positioning it. There is a 2-hour orientation and individual help can be given to artists in need.
All forms of digital art including but not limited to: still images like: jpegs, pngs, pdfs, moving images like: gifs, mov, mp4s, audio like: wav and mp3 and VR performance art
Yes and no. LAC is presented, until August 2023, inside of an exhibition at The MUD Foundation as part of its MUD 3.0 WASD exhibition. When visitors enter the exhibition, they see two screens, one that shows The Salon and one that shows The Salon des Refuses. It is labeled as Ariel Baron-Robbin's project in the show. Individual artist’s work in the Salons is labeled with each artist's name and a link to their artwork online. So, they are considered participants inside of the work, but their work is not part of the overall piece.
