VENUE: RMIT Gallery


In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s Evolution of Species, RMIT Gallery and ANAT present Super Human, an exhibition dwelling on technology, the body and the relationship between the two.


Emerging artistic and scientific practices have evolved new species of hybrid artforms. Super Human revisits the Cartesian body and its place in contemporary culture through its focus on Cognition & Neurology (Mind), Augmentation & Biological Manipulation (Body), and Nanoscale Interventions (Spirit, that which is not visible). Showcasing work in these fields by a new generation of Australasian artists, Super Human exposes our aspirations and fears about our bodies and their extraordinary functions. Presented by The Australian Network for Art and Technology.
