arts partnerships

Experimenta builds strong, diverse partnerships in the arts sector. Throughout our history we have worked with community art centres in rural areas, major arts organisations in Australia and abroad, designers, DIY enthusiasts, artist-run-spaces, regional galleries, and countless other organisations to bring experimental art to life, test the limits of media art practice, and share knowledge and skills. 

Experimenta supports international artist exchange opportunities to create meaningful connections between Australian artists and their international peers. We co-produce, curate and present with internationally-based organisations, and seek to promote the work of Australian artists overseas. 

The Experimenta International Biennial of Media Art is the only international biennial to tour Australia. It presents experimental art to diverse audiences across the country in partnership with galleries and museums in metropolitan, regional and rural Australia.  

Please contact us if you are interested in working with Experimenta.

digital media, science, technology & design Partnerships

Experimenta works at the intersection of art with digital media, science and technology, and design. Our program tests the limits of art, offers unique spaces for experimentation, and encourages interdisciplinary collaboration. 

Our network of artists have expertise in a broad range of creative disciplines, alongside digital media, science, technology and design fields, including app development, bio-art, gaming, film-making, video production, coding, robotics, electromechanics, experimental sound, performance, writing, photography, animation and more.

Experimenta is continually seeking to engage artists with new technologies, disciplines, and research and to support artists who are re-thinking established ways of working. 

Please contact us if you would like to discuss ways to engage artists in your digital media, science and technology, or design practice, research, or experimentation.
