Initially conceived as a response to the pandemic, Anthology Of Metaverses (AOM) has evolved into an exploration into the digital sphere as a space where artists can explore and create.

Its inaugural exhibition, AOM 1.0, which runs until April 24, is a real trip for anyone who’s new to Net-art, or art that uses the Internet as its primary medium. This project is supported by Malaysia's Cultural Economy Development Agency (Cendana).
