From URL to IRL and back again, this is art that meets you where you already are: online, hyper-connected and endlessly networked.

BLEED 2020 – Biennial Live Event in the Everyday Digital

This is BLEED 2020, a new festival from Arts House and Campbelltown Arts Centre. There are five new art commissions and they drop every two weeks from 22 June to 30 August.

Every day, every part of our lives is flooded with digital – this bolthole of the web is a space to consider why. And who, and how, and what’s missing.

The 2020 BLEED artists are:

Hannah Brontë, with Mi$$ Eupnea
Angela Goh and Su Yu Hsin, with Paeonia Drive
James Nguyen and Victoria Pham, with RE:SOUNDING
Alex Kelly and David Pledger, with Assembly for the Future
Emile Zile and Lilian Steiner, with Becoming The Icon

Through our artworks, and the BLEED Echo program, you can watch/listen/read/think/feel your way through the strangeness of our IRL and URL existence.

The whole program is free, but you’ll want to book so you don’t miss out on some of the extraordinary performances and experiences we’ve made.

In addition to the five major commissions, an exciting program of talks, essays and ideas makes up BLEED Echo; featuring Areej Nur, Miyuki Jokiranta, Joel Spring, Akil Ahamat; as well as partnerships with Witness Performance and Running Dog, and much much more.

Everything happens at www.bleedonline.net. Don’t miss out, subscribe via Facebook, Instagram and for a special delivery to your Inbox, here.

BLEED is presented by Arts House via the City of Melbourne, Campbelltown Arts Centre via the City of Campbelltown and supported by the Australia Council for the Arts.

Full program announced 22 June 2020
