The Odyssey Contemporary Art and Performance Simulators are a group of online simulators dedicated to contemporary art and performance with a focus on performance art. The Odyssey Simulators are made possible by the support of an International collective of independent artists. Odyssey includes a member-owned virtual space in Second Life and studio spaces in Sansar, AltSpaceVR and NEOSVR.
The Odyssey Simulators host studio work and presentation projects by wide International array of artists and organizations. We provide resources, studio and exhibition space, technical assistance and more to support artists working in virtual places – in particular those working with performance in online synthetic environments. The Odyssey Simulators are currently curated by Liz Solo and managed by the Black Bag Media Collective.
Odyssey is home to many working artists including The Avatar Orchestra Metaverse, Nebulosus Severine, Bibbe Hansen, Alan Sondheim, Erik Zepka, Patrick Lichty, Liz Solo , Dan Coyote, and the Senses Places Project by Isabel Valverde.
Odyssey produces a semi-annual Performance Art Festival and has presented scores of artists over the years including Joseph Delappe, Eva and Franco Mattes, Micha Cardenas, Elle Mehrmand, The Second Front, Stelarc and many more.
