A transcendent work of art
CARNE y ARENA is a solo immersive experience, amplified by virtual reality, that challenges our preconceptions and broadens our horizons. Based on true stories re-enacted by refugees from Central America and Mexico, this multi-sensory work, described by critics as a must-see event, allows us to immerse ourselves in a fragment of the refugees’ personal journeys.
Initially presented as a world premiere at the 70th Cannes Film Festival in 2017, becoming the first virtual reality project on the program in the history of the festival, Iñárritu's conceptual installation has been optimized by PHI Studio so that it can be presented around the world and be seen by as many people as possible. CARNE y ARENA was presented for the first time in its optimized version in Denver, Colorado last October.
An exclusive experience done safely
The large-scale 8,000-square-foot installation will be presented outside the walls of the PHI Centre in the spaces of Arsenal Contemporary Art. Only three visitors will be able to experience the 20-minute piece at a time, by circulating individually through three separate rooms.
Our team has implemented extensive COVID-19 safety measures in order to protect the health and well-being of visitors and staff, including mandatory masks, social distancing, a specialized air filtration system, and deep cleaning of the spaces after hours.
In partnership with Emerson Collective, Legendary Entertainment & PHI Studio.
