Brian Eno, Beach House & more scoring surrealistic “Omega Mart” exhibition
Santa Fe arts and entertainment producers Meow Wolf announced the lineup of musicians and visual artists involved in their new permanent exhibition, Omega Mart, which opens in Las Vegas' AREA15 entertainment complex on Thursday, February 18. In a press release, they describe Omega Mart as "not your typical grocery store - it’s a maximalist, psychedelic, and immersive art installation that will transport you to other dimensions." Here's more from the description:
Omega Mart is not your typical grocery store. It’s a 52,000 square foot viscerally satisfying, psychedelic, and totally unpredictable immersive art experience. This begins with hundreds of products that have the ability to fulfill desires beyond expectations and leads beyond into new worlds of inspiration, play, and transformation. More than 325 creatives are working on 250+ unique projects inside the exhibition, which will have 4 vast anchor spaces and 60 additional unique environments, such as installation-filled rooms, terrains, and portals to other worlds.
The preview video, which you can watch below, is a surrealistic delight, hosted by a deepfake Willie Nelson with shifting features.
