‘Experimenta Make Sense’ officially opens to a packed gallery
The first two weeks of Experimenta Make Sense: International Triennial of Media Art have been a huge success thanks to the support of our artists, our talented team and wonderful supporters.
On Thursday 5 October, we welcomed over 350 guests to RMIT Gallery for the official exhibition launch. Thank you to all of those who spoke on the night including RMIT Gallery Director Suzanne Davies, Experimenta’s Artistic Director Jonathan Parsons and our exhibition co-curator, President of the Experimenta Board Vito Giudice, and RMIT University’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research and Innovation Professor Calum Drummond. We were lucky to be joined by many of the exhibition’s artists who came in especially from around Australian and from overseas.

The first 10 days of the exhibition have been jam packed with a range of interactive and thought-provoking public programs including a curator’s talk by Jonathan Parsons and Lubi Thomas, an artist talk with Judy Watson and Paola Bella, a workshop with Briony Barr as part of her ‘Drawing on Complexity [The Experimenta Series], Experimenta Social #13: Participation Sense and Taste with Cat Jones and Elizabeth Willing, and Steve Berrick’s ‘Hello Future Self’ giving budding young artists a chance to bring their creations to life at Footscray Community Arts Centre and 100 Story Building. There are many more events on offer throughout the exhibition and we encourage you to look at our website to see what’s coming up.
