We are looking for talented emerging writers to offer a proposition on how art and science can be used to imagine a shared future. Stuck for ideas? Visit the ‘Patricia Piccinini: Curious Affection’ exhibition and be inspired by the artist’s imaginative, yet strangely familiar, lifelike hybrid creatures. Think about how advances in biotechnology and digital technologies are challenging concepts of humanity, and how artists are addressing these challenges and imagining a future for humans and our creations?
Interested in delving deeper into the ethical questions underpinning ‘Patricia Piccinini: Curious Affection’? Come along to the opening weekend public programs, as well as GOMA Talks on Thursday 26 April and 3 May, exploring humankind’s complicated relationship with the future we are creating.
