Spectra 2018 explored the increasing convergence of art and science and considered how each area impacts the other and how, together, they shed light on who we are and where we’re heading. The inaugural Spectra took place in Adelaide, South Australia and comprised a three-day symposium, an exhibition, and a public program of screenings, talks and performance.
Spectra 2018 was proudly presented by ANAT (previously known as the Australian Network for Art and Technology), with partners the University of South Australia and Experimenta Media Arts, in association with colleagues drawn from the arts and science sectors, and with generous additional support provided by Arts South Australia.⇐ Return to Conferences
