An ongoing international art project exploring a declining industry, ‘Ghosts in Armour’ opens at the Santa Fe Complex on May 25th.
The project is described as “a multi-disciplinary artistic exploration into the emerging post-industrial landscapes of Europe’s declining steel industry, documenting and contextualizing the losses currently shaping a number of communities.” The project showcases the work of of over 20 European artists.
Using Open Exhibits software, visitors to the Complex will be able to curate their own exhibition. The exhibit will use an Ideum multitouch table and projectors to allow visitors to immerse themselves at locations that the project has previously explored.
