Experimenta’s 5th International Biennial of Media Art

Experimenta’s 5th International Biennial of Media Art will make its only Queensland appearance in Brisbane on 7 April, opening at QUT’s The Block and State Library of Queensland

Speak to me considers what it means – at this time – to be together. Are we really “more connected than ever”? The free exhibition brings together works that offer multiple perspectives as to how we form connections with others and how we negotiate intimacy in our lives. 

A dynamic, hands-on showcase of emerging and experimental interactive and site-specific artworks including animation, projection and digital video by leading media artists from Australia and around the world, Speak to Me debuted in high-profile company at ISEA in 2013 and comes to Brisbane as part of a two-year national tour supporting and presenting new work by Australian and Asia-Pacific artists.

A huge line-up of events is scheduled to coincide with the exhibition, including:
