Recto VRso splits its 2021 edition with two exhibitions, Emergence and Restitution

For its upcoming edition, Recto VRso reinvents itself and reshapes its format by combining a virtual exhibition and a restitution in the physical world.

The 4th edition of the international digital art festival Recto VRso will take place online from 14th to 16th April 2021 in the virtual world of Laval Virtual World. A second part of the festival will be organized in a physical space from 7th to 11th July 2021 during the international exhibition Laval Virtual. For this 2021 edition, a call for applications is launched on the theme: Virtual Exhibition / Real Exhibition - Online art.

In this 4th edition, Recto VRso bursts in time and space. I always try to echo the current context, and this particular period pushes us to imagine new ways to promote and exhibit art. This year, we will highlight virtual artworks, and we and the artists will think on how to exhibit them in the real space.
- Judith Guez, founder and director of Recto VRso
