The PopBlock Gallery & Arcade is a wing of the digital museum in the game Mondrian – Plastic Reality. This wing plays home to rotating exhibits from independent artists all over the world. As believers in free expression, we welcome artists of all backgrounds and philosophies to come and share their creative experiences with the world.
As COVID-19 shut down the world, it took the art world with it. Art galleries not only closed, but were forgotten. These businesses were important to the entrepreneurs who started them, the curators working at them, and especially the artists who shared their works with the world there. While much of the art world moved online, there are tangible, missing elements to just looking at paintings on a website, rather than in a gallery: the storytelling, the interaction, the feeling of being in a space designed and dedicated to that artist’s world. As we were building out Mondrian’s story mode, we realized that the hub world we were creating could solve all of these problems, AND the technology was already in place to do so.
We work with artists who have a story to tell, a unique vision and style, and especially that emphasize the joie de vivre of the various 20th century, Modernist and Abstract movements. Through playable content, Museum decorations, stories, and even music, we hope to give artists a new home in 2021.
You can view information on our past, current, and upcoming exhibits here. To view the exhibits in depth, you’ll need to purchase Mondrian – Plastic Reality (available for Windows 7/8/10 on Steam). Exhibits require the purchase of additional downloadable content to view and play. This DLC directly supports the artists and Mondrian’s continued development.
