During the first virtual edition of SP-Foto, Utópica presents a selection of 20 photographs, from 18 modern and contemporary artists, in a VR filled with soundtracks. All works are accompanied either by a brief text and podcast (in Portuguese), bringing history and information, and sometimes by sounds to awaken other senses.
