Experimenta invited audiences to explore the complexities of imagining and shaping a world of tomorrow. Artists contemplated the relationship between the self and others, technology and humanity, nature and culture, the physical world and the digital realm.


How do we connect with life beyond the immediate, the biological and the artificial?Is it in the listening, feeling, and sensing?


Now or Never Art Trail curated by Experimenta explored the creative possibilities of a new tomorrow. Seven leading Australian and International contemporary artists ignited a 1.2km promenade journey through Melbourne’s Docklands with art and technology.



From large-scale generative artworks, to electronic organisms and immersive performance, artists encouraged audiences to listen, see, interact, and imagine. The exhibition brought together ideas and thought-provoking installations that challenge us to contemplate the future and our place within it.

The Now or Never Art Trail curated by Experimenta inspired dialogue about collective futures and the power of connection and relationship in shaping our tomorrow.
