There are lots of art gallery and art installation openings in Second Life going on right now, which means I have become a very busy blogger. The exhibit I am writing about today is Tutsy Navarathna‘s série noire at the Nitroglobus Gallery, which opens with a série noire-inspired party on Sunday, July 19, 2015 at 12 PM SLT. To most of us, Tutsy is known as an award-winning Second Life machinima maker; more recently he is also increasingly active within the realm of photography. His new exhibit, série noire, has been skillfully curated by Dido Haas and is shown in the gorgeous Nitroglobus Gallery, built by Nitro Fireguard. There is little doubt in my mind that this is one of the most beautiful large-scale galleries in Second Life at this time; several large rooms, some with a glass-like floor that truly has me stunned, come together to form a beautiful and cohesive exhibit space. The exhibit contains images by Tutsy and sculptures by his friend Nitro. Inspired by the série noire, a French publishing imprint founded in 1945 by Marcel Duhamel, the works here are all in one way or another related to the themes of love, hate, passion, detectives and crime. Head over and take a look and join the party on Sunday, which promises to be great fun!
