Welcome to The Museum of Hyperreal Art, a co-operative online gallery and museum representing an exclusive collection of artists evoking in their work themes and ideas surrounding the hyper-real. We have created an environment in which the viewer is brought closer to the artists, opening a dialogue about art and the subjects of real versus unreal, seen and unseen, and the cultural explosion of simulacra, or objects and information mass-replicated until they bear no resemblance to any origin.

To define something as having existence, it must be compared to a theoretical anchor of something that does not exist; there is no light without dark, no sound without quiet. Hyperreality exists where the distinction between real and imaginary implodes and neither subject can be quantified or defined as "real," because the anchor, or signifier, can no longer be identified.

This is no heralding of the future--hyperreality is here and now, and is reflected in a movement of artists all over the world. Here to give these artists a voice, The Museum of Hyperreal Art is the gallery that asks the question, "What is real?"
