Memory Palace X Art Apart
Memory Palace is excited to present four digital pieces of art created in a time of social distancing to explore the possibility and limits of transcending physical space and time, entering into someone else’s memory, and uncovering one of your own. This capsule collection of visual and audio works received financial support from the National Theatre School of Canada’s Art Apart program to support emerging artists during COVID-19.
