Imagine

Now open at DaphneArts, curated by SheldonBR and Angelika Corral, is a group exhibition entitled Imagine, featuring photographic works by Angelika Corral, Anouk A., Bay Addens, Burk Bode, Good Cross, Hills, Io Bechir, Isa Messioptra, Jammie Hill, Joslyn Benson, Maloe Vansant, miu miu miu, MM (mysterr), Paola Mills, Senna Coronet, tutsy Navarathna and Zib Scaggs. These images, displaying considerable skill and variation, are displayed a beautiful new gallery space.

"Imagine is a show that uses art, focused on promoting a peaceful communication, bringing together some great SL photographers from around the world," explain the curators. "The metaverse Second Life is a community that, in its own unique way, resembles the 'dream' which was eloquently presented by the English songwriter and performer John Lennon in his song 'Imagine' (1971). By this, Lennon, shared his dream of a world without borderlines, where people could live in a brotherhood of man, with nothing to live or to die for. The participating artists were invited to create an image using the song 'Imagine' as inspiration. They shared their vision as dreamers, via their artistic images."

Visitors to DaphneArts should also take the time to visit the Atelier (via the teleport at the landing point), where artworks by the two curators are on display. An additional gallery, currently dark, will host works by real life artists. Imagine will remain on display through late May, and contributions in support of the gallery may be made at the landing point.
