Collaboration between the arts and sciences has been seen to contribute to the creation of knowledge, ideas and processes beneficial across disciplines. Artists and scientists approach creativity, exploration and research in different ways and from different perspectives; when working together they open up new ways of seeing, experiencing and interpreting the world around us.

Spectra explores this increasing convergence of art and science and considers how each area impacts the other and how, together, they shed light on who we are and where we’re heading.

At the very heart of Spectra is our desire to showcase and celebrate the vanguard of Australian artists who continue to lead the world in experimental and interdisciplinary arts practice.
