Gal Pals! unfurls the signature universe and aesthetics that define the Shinsei Galverse community. For this exhibition, the walls of NEORT++’s gallery are enlivened and filled with a constellation of Gals. Networking, exchange activities, and Gals from local and international holders merge before being transcribed in a unique, immersive visual experience, along with a VTuber booth and more.
Triggered by PM invitations in the style of those 90s internet phenomenon copypastas and chain emails, the main part of the exhibition has built itself via a community-fueled method. This modus operandi encouraged a few invited Gal NFT holders to submit one of their badass Gals and send an invitation to one or two Galverse pals, who in turn could submit and invite, keeping the (anti)curation-chain going. In that way, Gal Pals! emphasizes and focuses on URL social activities, net-generated friendships, and the open-source, exponential nature of the internet and, more recently, the Web3 space. The resulting physical space takeover is just one more of the Galverse community efforts.
Concept & Coordination: Benoit Palop
Curated by the Galverse community
Promotion partner: MUTEK.JP
Special Thanks : The Galverse core team (Emi, Ayaka, Jack, and Devin), Sally Danger, Kevin Varian, and all the Gal Pals out there.
SHINSEI GALVERSE - GAL PALS!View artwork
Gal Pals! is an exhibition that develops the unique worldview and aesthetics of Galverse created by the community. In this exhibition, the entire wall of NEORT++ gallery in Tokyo will be filled with many gals, and the exchanges and activities of gals from Japan and overseas will be recorded as a unique and immersive video experience along with the VTuber booth. This exhibition was created in a community-driven manner, using an invitation method similar to chain mail, which was popular on the Internet in the 90s.
Shinsei Galverse is a collection of 8,888 Gals shooting across space and time to bring a project of peace to all cultures and people.
