Spectra is Australia’s pre-eminent art/science festival showcasing the best research and creative work being produced through interdisciplinary collaborations between Australasian artists and scientists.
Spectra explores the increasing convergence of art and science and considers how each area impacts the other and how, together, they shed light on who we are and where we’re heading. At the very heart of Spectra is the desire to showcase and celebrate the vanguard of artists leading the world in experimental and interdisciplinary arts practice.
Taking place for the first time in Adelaide, South Australia in October 2018, the inaugural Spectra comprised a symposium presenting collaborative research, an exhibition showcasing creative research outcomes, and a public program of screenings, talks, and performance.
