Divina Galería

Heena Malhotra


Divina Galería by Heena Malhotra is a Unity virtual museum that takes the user on an investigative journey to explore and to play within virtual space. Yearning to go back to the physical spaces of museums again but not being able to due to the global pandemic, Malhotra makes her own virtual museum. Divina Galería challenges our idea of museum space and where art is housed. What does the disembodiment of a museum mean for the art world? Without space as a limitation, we can all make our own personal virtual museums to showcase our art. Divina Galería is Malhotra’s personal museum, featuring her artworks, interactive installations, animations, sound visualizers, and room color change triggers. Malhotra subverts the usual function of traditional art museums through her use of virtual space, allowing Divina Galería to be an exhibition within an exhibition.
