Have you ever craved an experience that expanded your view of the world?
If your answer is “yes,” Wonderspaces Arizona is made for you. What began as a pop-up artistic experience in California is now in its first permanent location in Arizona at Scottsdale Fashion Square and is a true delight to audiences of all ages and interests. Guests have the chance to experience a magical night of interactive art experiences from 13 different artists around the world, as they enjoy immersive, participatory, interactive art paired with curated drinks and snacks in the 16,000-square-foot space formerly occupied by Harkins Theatres.
Wonderspaces’ inaugural show, “Point of View,” will challenge traditional viewpoints of time, religion, power and reality – featuring everything from digital painting through body movement to a virtual dinner party (brought to you by a former Homeland story editor and House of Cards producer).
Some of the most popular featured artwork displays include “Body Paint,” which plays on the natural instinct to express oneself through movement and dance. Body Paint interprets physical gestures into evolving compositions. It’s a true interaction experience, captured through the motion and energy of the body.
Additionally, “Black Balloons” has been another show stopper for many, which is comprised of balloons with opposing weights. The artwork explores contradictions, lightness and heaviness, attraction and repulsion, materiality and immateriality.
Wonderspaces Arizona is pleased to share its plans for this summer, as the second show under development called “Elsewhere” will feature a new lineup of artwork that prompts guests to question reality.
