NABERS Commitment Rating:
Experimenta is Australia’s preeminent media arts organisation, dedicated to commissioning, exhibiting and touring the best Australian and international contemporary media art.
We operate on a biennial model: launch in Melbourne every two years and then tour that exhibition across Australia during the next two years. We also partner with some of Australia’s leading cultural organisations to present additional exhibitions, projects and events. Each biennial exhibition brings with it new opportunities for commissioned artists to realise significant and ambitious art works. These opportunities include financial, professional development and industry support from Experimenta. Experimenta’s past commissioned artists have exhibited internationally, been acquired by major public and private collections, attracted lucrative public commissions and received significant commercial success. Experimenta’s commissioned artists also contribute to the Australian component of the biennial exhibition. These exhibitions continue to be at the forefront of contemporary new media art, delighting audiences of up to 50,000 during a four week season. Exerimenta exhibitions confirm Australia’s place at the forefront of technical and artistic innovation.
