For 2018, Midsumma Festival takes the leap into the digital queer realm, co-presenting with QueerTech.io this extraordinary online gathering of artists at the frontier of creative practice.
Responding to the growing international inquiry into practices of #queertech in digital art circles, QueerTech.io and Midsumma have invited artists from around the world to come together digitally, physically and oh-so-queerly to contribute internet artworks, projects and provocations to the ongoing #queertech conversation.
Catch selected IRL works at Testing Grounds as well as at RMIT's Spare Room and Lightscapes galleries. Join a special ART + FILM screening at ACMI of 2018 QueerTech.io work, plus conversation with curators and artists.
