      Workshop, Music, Performance, Youth

Fear of missing art? You’ve come to the right place! Join the Youth Collective this month as they explore the intersection between art and technology, and how rapid advances in technology has driven new ways of creative expression.

Hear from the Gallery’s time-based conservator Asti Sherring as she talks to us about some of the challenges and issues around conserving new media in contemporary art.

Be transported by the experimental sounds and unique soundscapes created by emerging female musicians from Information and Cultural Exchange’s All Girl Electronic. These young women from Western Sydney will delight us with their synth sounds inspired by the works in Spacemakers and roomshakers exhibition.

Don’t miss their one-off performance during SoundLab, taking place among the meandering urban sculpture of Yona Lee’s In transit (double-function form).

Bring your friends, meet like-minded art lovers and ignite your imagination and creativity.
