About Experimenta Life Forms: International Triennial of Media Art

Experimenta Life Forms: International Triennial of Media Art includes 26 boundary-pushing international and Australian artists showcasing art across robotics, bioart, screen-based works, installations, participatory and generative art. It has been curated by Jonathan Parsons, Lubi Thomas and Jessica Clark. The exhibition thought-provokingly engages with ideas of how new understandings of biological and artificial life are challenging human-centric thinking. The exhibition is the eighth national touring exhibition from Experimenta.

About Softening the eyes

Softening the Eyes is Nadja Kabriel’s response to her surroundings and her place in them. For the artist the process of oil painting is almost entirely visceral; painting removes the veils that prevent us from seeing. The inspiration for these works comes when Kabriel sees, in a new light, the objects that she normally walks past unnoticed. By painting them from this new perspective, she returns herself to reality.

About Beauty for Beauty's Sake

Uki-based artist David Preston ’s latest exhibition Beauty for Beauty’s Sake is comprised of new works created throughout 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the associated lockdown and its implications for an artist who works largely en plein air. Capturing thoughtfully arranged still lifes, views from his garden and scenes of quiet village life, Preston emphasises a ‘beauty-first’ approach to painting.
