Experimenta International Biennial of Media Arts

Experimenta is Australia’s leading media arts organisation, dedicated to commissioning, exhibiting and touring the world’s best contemporary media art.

RMIT Gallery is delighted to partner with Experimenta in presenting the 6th International Biennial of Media Arts. This marks the second occasion in which RMIT Gallery has partnered with Experimenta, Australia’s leading media arts organization dedicated to commissioning, exhibiting and touring some of the world’s most compelling contemporary media art. Experimenta’s vision is auspiciously aligned with the trans-disciplinary focus of RMIT Gallery within RMIT University, with its global orientation and overarching commitment to design and innovation across all teaching and research disciplines.

Entitled Recharge, this 6th Experimenta provides a perfect opportunity to draw on resources and capacities across RMIT University including RMIT’s International Artist in Residence Program, SIAL, Design Hub and the professional resources and exhibition capacity of RMIT Gallery as principal venue and sponsor partner. RMIT Gallery’s distinctive approach to research within the university is to identify outcomes that can then be transformed into artworks or manifestations appropriate to exhibition in a public art gallery.

This was highlighted in the impromptu performance at RMIT A’Beckett Urban Square following the official exhibition opening, where Melbourne dance artists Brooke Stamp, Deanne Butterworth, Shian Law, Ellen Davies, Lilian Steiner and Tim Walsh joined Abel Korinsky to transform the blue sports court into an outdoor stage. The performance, which was formed from common interests in the Big Bang, soundart and dance, played to a large audience and artfully demonstrated the ways in which RMIT Gallery’s exhibition programme opens up new speculative ways of thinking and understanding through the visceral experience of art.
