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 group of independent artists. Currently Odyssey hosts studio and presentation space in Second Life and in NEOSVR. Our Second Life sim – Odyssey Island – is the oldest artist-run sim in the metaverse.
The Odyssey Simulators support studio work and presentation projects created by wide International array of artists and organizations – 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 and groups including The Avatar Orchestra Metaverse, Nebulosus Severine, Bibbe Hansen, Alan Sondheim, The Velvet, Patrick Lichty, Liz Solo , Dan Coyote, Yael Gilks, Sca Shilova, 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.
