The Glinka Gallery — Featuring artist Lash VV

June is Pride Month in the Unit­ed States and many oth­er coun­tries, and that’s just one of the rea­sons that we’re fea­tur­ing Wolf­gang Glinka’s Glin­ka Gallery in this edi­tion of “Where Have You Been?”.

For those who might not know, Pride Month start­ed in 1969 in the Unit­ed States as a response to the Stonewall riots, which served as a cat­a­lyst for the gay rights move­ment in the Unit­ed States and around the world. The obser­vance has grown and expand­ed over the years, and Pride Month cel­e­brates LGBTQIA+ cul­ture as well as work­ing to build rights awareness.

The Glin­ka Gallery holds reg­u­lar exhi­bi­tions and per­for­mances  on  the gallery’s five floors, fea­tur­ing fine art, sculp­ture, pho­tog­ra­phy, poet­ry, music and dance.

The Edge Gallery — in black & white

Kul­ti­vate Mag­a­zine is a pub­li­ca­tion about the cul­tur­al aspects of Sec­ond Life — and a lot more! Its goal is to sup­port art, cul­ture, pho­tog­ra­phy, music, and fashion.

Kultivate’s endeav­ours in Sec­ond Life include the mag­a­zine (of course) but their grid pres­ence is sig­nif­i­cant, incor­po­rat­ing, among oth­er things, a num­ber of gal­leries includ­ing The Edge Gallery of Black & White Imagery, which is the sub­ject of this programme.

The Edge Gallery specif­i­cal­ly fea­tures black and white imagery and art. We take a more detailed look at the cur­rent exhib­it, which just opened, show­ing a vari­ety of artists with unique approach­es to mono­chrome 2‑D imagery.

Where Have You Been?: A Hidden Gem

Often on “Where Have You Been?” we fea­ture large-scale loca­tions — art gal­leries, nature regions and so on. But in addi­tion from time to time we’ve fea­tured small­er, more inti­mate venues ide­al for a qui­et chat with a friend or a date night.  “Where Have You Been?” is in a good posi­tion to fea­ture des­ti­na­tions like these. So we are start­ing a spe­cial occa­sion­al series to focus on small des­ti­na­tions, in addi­tion to con­tin­u­ing our cov­er­age of larg­er venues, art shows, and events: “Hid­den Gems — for date nights and spe­cial occa­sions.” And this episode is the first offi­cial Hid­den Gems episode.

Where Have You Been? — A New Season

We’re pleased to announce the start of the third series of our orig­i­nal pro­gramme, “Where Have You Been?”, where we dis­cuss places to vis­it and things to do around the Sec­ond Life grid — and we try to ensure they’re usu­al­ly things and places that the major com­men­ta­tors miss.

WYB” airs every Wednes­day and Sat­ur­day at 12 noon and 4pm Pacif­ic / SLT, and each episode is broad­cast over a cou­ple of weeks. And don’t miss “Engines of Our Inge­nu­ity” from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Hous­ton, every four hours from 4am Pacific.

Our des­ti­na­tions gen­er­al­ly fall into one of three cat­e­gories: Art, Explo­ration and Events. In the first episode of the new sea­son, it’s the first of those, as we take a trip over to GBTH, aka “Grab By The Horns”  — a vir­tu­al visu­al arts incu­ba­tor in Sec­ond Life, found­ed in Octo­ber 2017 by Mari­na Münter. 

Where Have You Been? visits The Temple of the Divine Feminine

In this episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?” we vis­it The Tem­ple of the Divine Fem­i­nine, on SLEA Region 2. It’s the cre­ation of 20 women artists and cre­ators coor­di­nat­ed by KismaK­SR Res­i­dent, and occu­pies a full region  — a very full region — with mes­sages cel­e­brat­ing fem­i­nine pow­er, cre­ativ­i­ty, and voic­es, includ­ing some impor­tant focal issues.

The instal­la­tion is divid­ed into four major themed areas arranged like a med­i­cine wheel. Each area has an entry gallery, a space for invo­ca­tion, and the tem­ple itself. Each of these four areas aligns with the four ele­ments — air, fire, water, and earth — and are laid out along the major axes of the compass.

Monsters, Demons & Chess

Join us on Wednes­days or Sat­ur­days, at noon or 4pm Pacific/SLT, 8pm or mid­night in the UK, for the lat­est episode of our series Where Have You Been? at 12 noon and 4pm Pacif­ic, where we sug­gest places to go and things to do around the Sec­ond Life Grid.

This time we take a dive into the pos­si­bil­i­ties of AI in art: there’s a gallery exhib­it this month com­posed com­plete­ly of AI Images at Kon­dor Art Cen­ter by artist Monique Beebe: “Mon­sters, Demons, & Chess” and that’s our fea­tured des­ti­na­tion for this episode. This edi­tion airs Novem­ber 16, 19, 23 and 26.

Ancient Journeys

Today, join us on a musi­cal jour­ney across the Ancient World, guid­ed by the ancient and mys­te­ri­ous Piri Reis Map; and look at the use of AI in art at 12 noon/4pm SLT. And tune in for Engines of Our Inge­nu­ity every four hours from 4am Pacific.

On our musi­cal jour­ney, we vis­it Ancient Greece, Rome and beyond to encounter the Sev­en Won­ders of the Ancient World. We redis­cov­er lost Atlantis, the ancient civil­i­sa­tions of South Amer­i­ca, cross the Pacif­ic and even trav­el to Antarc­ti­ca and the Moon.

Where Have You Been? S02E20: SL’s Top Haunted Places Tour & Hunt

In the lat­est episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?”, where we look at things to do and places to see across the Sec­ond Life Grid, Cale and Rik dis­cuss the SL Top Haunt­ed Places Tour & Hunt — a unique list of Hal­lowe’en loca­tions and events in Sec­ond Life.

The show will be broad­cast on Wednes­days and Sat­ur­days at 12 noon and 4pm Pacific/SLT (8pm and mid­night in the UK), until the end of October.

Where Have You Been? S02E19: Rosehaven Caverns

In the lat­est episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?”, where we look at things to do and places to see across the Sec­ond Life Grid, Cale and Rik vis­it the Rose­haven Cav­erns — a new devel­op­ment that enables you to nav­i­gate around the estate under­ground! The show goes out Sept 28, and Oct 1, 5 and 8, at 12 noon and 4pm Pacific/SLT; 8pm and mid­night in the UK.

The sys­tem is grow­ing every day and each of the caves are built by dif­fer­ent denizens of the realm, mak­ing this a huge col­lab­o­ra­tive expe­ri­ence to explore and get lost in.  There’s a sub­way entrance in Lau­danum lead­ing to the Under­ground, a mine shaft out­side a goth­ic cas­tle on the oth­er end of the realm lead­ing into the tun­nels, not to men­tion a hand­ful of secret pirate tun­nels. Each res­i­dent par­tic­i­pat­ing adds their own style and imag­i­na­tion to their design and then con­nects to the nexus.
