Alongside the ART&VR Gallery, a Lab’ R&C section showcases the artistic diversity of the area by inviting established artists, students, researchers and collectives to take over different spaces. This dynamic allows emerging projects to be exhibited more freely, accompanying a particular theme, hybridizing different practices and opening the door to artistic exploration. This section also aims to encourage partnerships, by proposing that academic, artistic or industrial organisations take over a space, a theme and/or organise events in line with Recto VRso’s values.

Several partner universities

Since the beginning of the Recto VRso festival, several universities have invested Laval’s emblematic sites, such as the Bains-Douches and the Musée Ecole de la Perrine, to present research-creation and digital art to the general public.

This year, Lab’ R&C will be presenting works from a number of schools: Université Paris 8 Vincennes – Saint-Denis, Université Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3, Beaux-Arts TALM Le Mans- Université Rennes 2, National Tsing Hua University, Université Catholique de l’Ouest – Laval.
