Techno//Mysticism

 

Techno//Mysticism Tickets

Eastern Bloc will officially reopen in its brand new location, in the heart of the Chabanel Sector of the District Central neighbourhood, to present Techno//Mysticism: an arts exhibition presenting four emerging artists’ reflections on the future of meaning and its entanglement with new technology. The exhibition encourages contemplation on contemporary mystical and spiritual pursuits, as well as the impermanence and fragility of human existence.

The exhibition will be open for in-person attendance from January 22nd to February 26th from 12PM-5PM, Wednesday to Saturday. Eastern Bloc will be enforcing COVID-19 protocols in our gallery space to ensure the safety of our staff and exhibition guests.

The Techno//Mystcism closing party will be held Friday the 25th of February, from 5pm to 8pm EST.
