Experimenta Make Sense:
Curatorial Tour

Sat 13 Feb 2021, 11AM – 12PM

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 us for a unique guided tour of this playful and challenging exhibition presented at Benalla Art 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. The tour will conclude with a virtual Q&A with the exhibition’s co-curator, Jonathan Parsons.

Experimenta is the future of art, presenting work that is poised on the intersect between art, science and technology. Since its inception in 1986, Experimenta has developed a worldwide reputation for fostering creativity that extends the aesthetic, conceptual and experiential potential of art forms. Experimenta presents art that can not be experienced elsewhere, imagining the future of art and exploring unchartered pathways towards it.
