New Psychedelia

7 MAY – 3 JULY 2011

In recent years psychedelic ideas and aesthetics have

made a notable return to contemporary art.

The current influence of psychedelia has developed

in response to the growing impact of global capital

and technology on daily life. New Psychedelia presents

a range of contemporary Australian artworks that

display psychedelic influences and strategies for

addressing the themes of consciousness, capitalism

and technology. The exhibition will feature existing

artworks alongside new site-specific works

commissioned for the exhibition.

Chris Bennie, Damiano Bertoli, Matt Dabrowski and
