The Space Popular: The Portal Galleries is an exhibition curated by Space Popular architectural studio and Sir John Soane's Museum in London. The team created an exhibition that looks at the magic and mechanics of virtual travel documented throughout the history of fiction.
In addition to the fictional documentation of portals, the exhibition explores the studies of physical portals in the museum itself and a virtual reality portal. Space Popular launched a teaser exhibition today, November 8th, 2021, in anticipation of the exhibition's June 2022 opening. The design and layout of the museum space dedicated the studio's approach to this project. "We see the Soane as a device that enables the virtual experience of space, not only because of the objects we can find thereby how they are contained and displayed," as Space Popular explains.
