Experimenta Make Sense – Up Late
19 May 2018 - Plimsoll Gallery, UTAS, Hobart
Join us for a special one-night only exhibition event as we attempt to investigate the world around us.
Both playful and thought provoking, Experimenta Makes Sense: International Triennial of Media Art asks audiences to immerse their senses into a ‘thinking’, ‘feeling’ and ‘doing’ contemplation of what it is to be human in an age of technological acceleration.
Experimenta Make Sense – Up Late will see the exhibition activated in new ways to provoke audiences to interact and connect. Engage with technology-driven art designed to activate your senses and enjoy performances from exhibiting artist Gail Priest and local electronic media artist, Matt Warren.
