Museum of Old and New

Experimenta Utopia Now
5th August 2011 - 3rd October 2011
Works by Australian and international "new media" artists reflecting our search for the perfect world. We know it is an impossible notion - so why do we keep looking and hoping?
Experimenta Utopia Now is hands-on and innovative with lots of moving image works - from plants that respond to human gesture to one that foreshadows the world covered in our 21st-century debri. Works from Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States, Russia, India, China, Germany, France, Austria and Australia that dare you to ponder that the fate of the world is in your hands. A dystopian challenge?
Location: ground floor touring galleries.
Experiment Media Arts is a Melbourne-based organisation that commissions, exhibits and promotes media and technology based art.
