Are you a fan of style, culture and creativity? You’re in luck, because the 29Rooms festival is coming to Atlanta.
“29 Rooms: Expand Your Reality,” an interactive, pop-up art extravaganza by Refinery29, is making its way to ATL’s The Works for 11 days this summer as part of a five-city tour, which also includes Chicago, Dallas, Toronto and Washington, D.C.
The 29-room installation, which has already stopped in Los Angeles and New York, offers a space for visitors to explore an “eclectic mix of art forms,” such as dance, fashion, visual art and more.
Some of the most popular exhibits include the Teenage Bedroom, a technicolor fur bedroom that takes folks back to the 90s teenage years, and Inner Beauty Ball, a dance party where guests are invited to groove.
“Our goal for 29Rooms is to create spaces that ignite wonder, spark conversation, and dare people to dream bigger, in collaboration with brilliant local, international artists and partners,” Piera Gelardi, Refinery29 executive creative director and co-founder, said in a press release. “Within our walls, guests will be encouraged to tap into their creativity and open themselves up to new ideas, connections, and unforeseen experiences.”
Since its launch in 2015, 29Rooms has partnered with visionaries, nonprofits, local artists and influencers, like Janelle Monae and Solange, to curate experiences for its audiences. To date, it’s sold 100,000 tickets and has been visited by celebrities, including SZA and Yvonne Orji.
“29 Rooms: Expand Your Reality” will be in Atlanta from Aug. 29-Sept. 8 at The Works, 1295 Chattahoochee Ave. NW. Tickets for the event are on sale now at www.29rooms.com/tickets for $30. Your pass will guarantee you access for two and a half hours.
