>>Experimenta Vanishing Point::Media Art Exhibition
Ipswich Art Gallery presents Experimenta Vanishing Point, an extraordinary exhibition of media art and videos inspired by the twisted realities of Alice in Wonderland and Being John Malkovich. Showcasing the works of Australian and international digital media artists, filmmakers, scientists, video artists, animators, and sound artists working at the forefront of new media art the exhibition features miniature worlds and photographs that come to life. This is an exhibition of artworks you can touch and play with: art like you’ve never experienced before.
>>Experimenta Vanishing Point:: Video Jukebox screening program
Experimenta Vanishing Point::Video Jukebox offers an international selection of visual delights where absurdity lurks around every corner, taking you by surprise with an ironic, humorous and sometimes gently mocking representation of the world around us. This strong line-up of innovators includes artists from Australia, Korea, France and the USA, showcasing their unique talents across a collection of works that range from the playful to the inquisitive and the downright strange.
