Discover ARTECHOUSE,  a hidden digital art space in the basement of Chelsea Market. ARTECHOUSE is the first permanent space in New York City devoted to showing new media artworks. It takes up 6,000 square feet of what use to be the historic boiler room of the former Meatpacking District headquarters of the National Biscuit Company. The debut installation in this space is Machine Hallucinations, a mind-bending immersive experience by acclaimed digital artist Refik Anadol that uses artificial intelligence and photographs of New York City to tell a visual narrative.  Untapped New York Insiders were among the first to experience the exhibit back in September, and now Insider have a chance to see the show before it closes in January 2020.

Anadol’s digital artwork utilizes a dataset of tens of millions of architectural images of New York City’s iconic buildings and public spaces and pulls them together to create an experiential environment that reveals hidden connections between unique moments in the city’s architectural culture and history. The space will be completely transformed and visitors will be enveloped by floor-to-ceiling images that show New York’s familiar spaces in stunning new ways.

Non-members can purchase tickets here, a $24 value!
