Experimenta: the future of art driven by technology


Established in 1986, Experimenta is Australia’s leading organisation dedicated to commissioning, exhibiting and promoting contemporary art driven by technology. Investigating the questions and concerns of our time, Experimenta challenges how we think, feel and experience technologies today.

In 2020, Experimenta will launch our latest triennial Experimenta Life Forms, exploring how developments in biological and artificial life forms and an increasing awareness of biological interdependency are shifting our human-centric thinking.

Philosophers have wrestled with defining life for thousands of years. Experimenta Life Forms reveals how contemporary artists are approaching this perennial question, at a time when technological change and new research findings are making definitions of ‘life’ increasingly difficult to pin down. Featuring new commissions and artworks by more than twenty leading Australian and International artists, this exhibition will contribute to the dialogue around life as we know it, or indeed, as we don’t know it.

Experimenta is raising funds for the development of newly commissioned artworks by Australian artists plus public programs and educational and access resources that will launch in Melbourne (2020) and tour Australia (2021-2023) as part of Experimenta Life Forms.

Recently accepted into Creative Partnerships Australia's PLUS1 program, every dollar we raise by 30 May 2020 will be matched by CPA, effectively doubling all donations given.

Producing the only Australian triennial to tour nationally, Experimenta brings media art to diverse regional and metropolitan communities across the country. We provide artists and audiences with unique opportunities to create and experience a mix of interactive, reactive, contemplative and deeply immersive artworks.
