Exhibition Opening: HyperPrometheus

19 October 6.30pm

Join us on 19 October from 6.30pm to celebrate the opening of HyperPrometheus: The Legacy of Frankenstein. The exhibition will be opened by Susan Rosser, Professor of Synthetic Biology at the University of Edinburgh. 
Featuring Australian and international artists, HyperPrometheus re-contextualises Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, or The Modern Prometheus for the new millennium within the realms of contemporary and biological arts. It focuses on what Frankenstein means today in relation to the intersection of the living and the non-living, artifice and nature, reproductive and biomedical technologies and other scientific and technological practices of our age.
The selected artworks tackle the creation and assemblage of life and death, the reanimation of the non-living, future life, synthetic biology and the technological non-human.
HyperPrometheus is part of SymbioticA’s Unhallowed Arts event series.
Why not make a night of it and combine a visit to the HyperPrometheus opening with a visit to our Unhallowed Arts colleagues, the Art Gallery of Western Australia, for their twilight opening (5-8pm) of WA NOW – Biomess – The Tissue Culture & Art Project (Oron Catts / Ionat Zurr).
Curated by Oron Catts, Laetitia Wilson and Eugenio Viola.
Presented in partnership with SymbioticA, The University of Western Australia (UWA).

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Unspoken by Olga Cironis has regrettably been postponed.
