Experimenta Recharge: 6th International Biennial of Media Art

WHEN : 25th August – 26th September
WHERE : QUT CI Precinct

Experimenta, Australia’s leading media arts organisation, presents Experimenta Recharge: 6th International Biennial of Media Art at The Block, QUT Creative Industries Precinct. Looking closely at the role media art plays in re-telling and creating stories,Experimenta Recharge focuses on artists whose work is inspired by and entangled with the past, exploring whether knowledge changes when it is presented in different technological forms and cultural contexts. By producing unconventional perspectives, can artists illuminate existing knowledge and meaning for a new generation?

Artistic Director Jonathan Parsons has selected multidisciplinary works that draw from photography, installation, electronic sculpture, interactive and immersive media, robotics, bio art, live art, sound art, 3D printing, games, animation, film and video. The exhibition presents works from Australian and international artists, featuring five new commissions, artist representation from every mainland Australian state, and six international artists, five of whom are being shown in Australia for the first time.


The exhibition features a range of artworks from critically-acclaimed Australian and international artists, including:
