Go to queertech.io on your screen of choice to reveal an online art experience of imaginative, revelatory and playful works that go beyond the binary in digital art. Midsumma Festival and QueerTech.io have hand picked new works from across the globe for you to view in bed, on the tram, in the park or wherever works for you.

On Friday 1 February you can literally and virtually get inside the work when the QueerTech.io artist collective present Black Box, an experiment in live digital making at Testing Grounds.



The QueerTech.io artist collective will be artists in residence at Testing Grounds from 22 January to 10 February. The residency site will act as a hub, collaboration incubator and experimental exhibition space. As part of Midsumma Festival, QueerTech.io will invite artists and audiences to contribute towards artistic, verbal and online conversations that deconstruct and reconsider notions of queerness in a tech-saturated present.

The 2019 collection includes works by artists from Australia, Canada, France, Germany and the USA. Information about some of the works follows.


Also, check out our hands-on workshops for queer youth at ACMI.
