WHEN : 17th June - 3rd September
WHERE : UQ Art Museum
New Alchemists comprises a diverse suite of works by Australian and International artists exploring ideas of futuristic biologies and post-human engagements within the broad intersections of art and science.
Paralleling a view of the artist as contemporary alchemist, the selected works channel experiences beyond our accessible human and non-human worlds. Through play, ambiguity and provocation, the works engage in narratives that collapse our sense of familiarity and embodied otherness with the world around us.
