The video virtual exhibition experience is an open resource that Galerias São Rafael makes available to all users. Our main goal, through the virtual experience, is contribute to a dynamization of the individual’s emotional and intellectual fields, as well as looking at culture and its artistic dimension from an evolutionary perspective. Art is a human investment and our video virtual exhibitions are a destination of high production value rich in artistic content that make use of augmented reality. The experience of enjoying real works of art is increased through a virtual environment, in which the viewer is guided through the exhibition. It’s an immersive artistic experience that can be experienced anywhere in the world and at any time.

We mark the International Press Freedom Day with the launch of the “Information” series, by the young artist Rodolfo M. Costa. This series was created after the artist moved to Berlin, where he captured the Kunstmeile spirit of the Berlin Wall (“the art mile”). The creation of a series of 18 frames sealed in resin captures fragments of a vandalized fantasy dimension and drags them into our reality, exploring themes such as graffiti, information, advertising, multiculturalism and consumerism.
