Experimenta is Australia’s pre-eminent media arts organisation. We showcase dynamic and challenging contemporary art that intersects with digital media, science and technology, and design. We lead industry discussion and grow audiences for media art. Experimenta is an incubator for experimentation, challenges convention, celebrates the maverick, and encourages collaboration.
Established in 1986 by experimental film and video makers, Experimenta has been instrumental in the development of Australian media art from an underground cultural phenomenon to a celebrated form recognised by major cultural institutions, and growing in scope and sophistication. Melbourne based, with a national and global reach, Experimenta commissions, presents and advocates for Australian artists. Through our research, education and development programs, Experimenta deepens engagement with our existing audiences and builds new audiences and markets for media art, increasing the capacity of the cultural sector.
