Catching Breaths at Testing Grounds

Excited to be invited to host Catch Your Breath at the one night Testing Grounds event in South Melbourne in March. Upwards of 600 people attend the regular one night markets with 20 or so artisan maker stalls and a dozen artists.

I don’t often get the chance to engage with visitors and talk about their response to seeing their breath captured and the ideas behind the work. At least 100 people caught their breath, contributing more than 200 breaths to the archive, which is now well over 16,000 breaths. With 3 cities remaining in the Experimenta tour, we may exceed 30,000 breaths.

Invitation to Tweed Regional Gallery – Experimenta Opening

Experimenta Make Sense is an exhibition that expresses the disconcerting and delightful world of the digital age. Both playful and challenging, this exhibition asks audiences to immerse their senses into a ‘thinking’, ‘feeling’ and ‘doing’ contemplation of what it is to be human in the digital age of technological acceleration.

You are warmly invited to attend the opening celebrations on Friday 27 July 2018, with special events featuring Experimenta Co-Curators Lubi Thomas & Jonathan Parsons.

At 5.00 – 6.00pm join Lubi Thomas for an exhibition preview tour.
At 6.00pm Jonathan Parsons will officially open the exhibition.

Free event. All are welcome.
Limited places for exhibition preview talk, bookings recommended.
