"'Mind from the Future' is this year's most fascinating exhibition, it is magical and serious food for thought, for even those who are less into physics, electricity or inventions."
Farkas Anita @ DEMOKRATA - Hungarian cultural magazine / "NIKOLA TESLA - MIND FROM THE FUTURE"
Nikola TESLA Exhibitions
PLACES & AWARDS & NUMBERS
A curatorial international team comprised from Spanish, Croatian, Serbian and Italian companies, designers and authors, created and produced content and design for two major traveling exhibitions about Nikola Tesla, that has been touring Europe and Latin America since 2014th, reaching almost 2 000 000 visitors all together in 5 years!
Each exhibition is unique in its approach to tell a story about TESLA.
One is more biographical and factually oriented with a separate section devoted to TESLA as an inspiration in POP Culture - "NIKOLA TESLA - THE FUTURE IS HIS".
The other is a GIANT ARTISTIC MULTIMEDIA INSTALLATION that is presenting an experience of a genius mind of Nikola TESLA - "NIKOLA TESLA - MIND FROM THE FUTURE".
Motivated by the success of both exhibition, upon recent requests for the future shows around the world, we decided to put them together into one "story", merging ART & SCIENCE through a new curatorial concept, that will immerse visitors into the complex philosophically artistic mind and stunning scientific & engineering accomplishments of NIKOLA TESLA.
Before we present a new concept, we would like to share some facts & figures we are proud of:
