“29Rooms:”Expand Your Reality” Activation

Atlanta is currently home to a one of a kind interactive and immersive experience. BOSSIP recently attended the Atlanta opening of Refinery29’s annual “29Rooms: Expand Your Reality” festival.

The traveling activation is in the ATL from August 29 – September 8 and its an exclusive invitation into a realm of abundant thinking and endless possibilities. We perused around the event and enjoyed collaborations like Unbothered’s A LONG LINE OF QUEENDOM where all things that make black women royalty were celebrated. From hoop earrings to bonnets, the display also pays homage to black women’s unique and often overcriticized space in society and reminds us to keep carrying our crowns.

We also enjoyed THE ART PARK where local artist NNEKKAA (@nnekkaa_ ) transformed Refinery 29’s geometric playground into a canvas for creativity…

and THE TEENAGE BEDROOM In Collaboration with Uzumaki Cepeda (@Uzumaki.Gallery) where we had nostalgia via Spice Girls posters, fuzzy walls, and a hamburger phone. We also relived our childhood by playing Mario Kart on a working Nintendo.

Another standout for sure was THE TRAVELING BILLBOARD ATLANTA In Collaboration with Sarah Emerson (@sarahemersonart). At each stop along the 2019 29Rooms Expand Your Reality Tour, guests are welcomed by a massive billboard treated with a mural by a locally-based artist who captures the iconic silhouette of the urban landscape. Sarah Emerson’s piece is a bold depiction of Atlanta called “O Smithereens” (our favorite term)—so of course, we were impressed.
