Immerse yourself in a fantastical world with Synthetica — a BLINDSIDE and NETS Victoria touring exhibition. Curated by Claire Anna Watson, Synthetica presents sumptuous experimental works by seven of Victoria's most cutting edge contemporary artists: Boe-lin Bastian, Simon Finn, Bonnie Lane, Kristin McIver, Kate Shaw, Alice Wormald and Paul Yore.
Synthetica is not for the fainthearted — the artists have been selected for their visually charged and hypnotic imagery. Expect an experience that smacks of the strange with pulsing machines and courageous forms brimming with life and wonder.

This exhibition has been supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
