7 May – 3 July 2011

In recent years psychedelic ideas and aesthetics have made a notable return to contemporary art. The current influence of psychedelia has developed in response to the growing impact of global capital and technology on daily life. New Psychedelia presents a range of contemporary Australian artworks that display psychedelic influences and strategies for addressing the themes of consciousness, capitalism and technology. The exhibition will feature existing artworks alongside new site-specific works commissioned for the exhibition.
