Experimenta Make Sense: Curator’s Tour
27 July 2018 - Tweed Regional Gallery, NSW
According to Harvard biologist E.O. Wilson a challenge for 21st century humanity is that “we have Paleolithic emotions, medieval institutions and god-like technologies.” Experimenta Make Sense: International Triennial of Media Art, exhibits a program of over 20 leading international and Australian artists who engage directly with this conundrum.
Join Exhibition Co-curator, Lubi Thomas, for a unique chance to explore the playful and challenging artworks presented at Tweed Regional Gallery and immerse your senses into a ‘thinking’, ‘feeling’ and ‘doing’ contemplation of what it is to be human in the digital age of technological acceleration.
Experimenta Media Arts is where creativity and technology collide. As Australia’s pre-eminent media arts organisation established by experimental film and video makers in 1986, Experimenta showcases dynamic contemporary art at the nexus of digital media, science and technology, and design.
