Art, science and technology intersect in exciting new exhibition

Tweed Shire Council

Returning with their 8th national touring show, Experimenta Life Forms: International Triennial of Media Art is launching at Tweed Regional Gallery this summer.

Featuring 26 contemporary Australian and international artists working across diverse artforms – including robotics, bio-art, screen-based works, installations, participatory and generative art – the exhibition explores the changing notions of life in response to new scientific research and technological change.

While the focus is on biological life, there are also artworks that look to a future with sentient machines and the possibilities afforded by biotechnology research. In unexpected, playful and challenging ways, the exhibition connects us to the complexity and messiness of the life that envelops us.

Tweed Regional Gallery Director Susi Muddiman OAM said: “This will be our second time presenting Experimenta at the Gallery. When we first hosted the exhibition in 2018, we had such a positive response from our audience, so we are incredibly excited to welcome it back this year.

“The artists in Experimenta explore complex issues and ideas, and present them in immersive and engaging ways. The works encourage you to slow down and to think or ask questions.”

The exhibition will be on display from Friday 10 December 2021 until Sunday 30 January 2022.
