BLEED is a new six-year project exploring the interplay between the live and the digital. From URL to IRL and back again, this is art that meets you where you already are: online, hyper-connected and endlessly networked.

Presented by Arts House (Melbourne) and Campbelltown Arts Centre (Sydney), BLEED tracks the many border crossings that occur between bodies and devices, the real and the virtual, and our private and public selves. As the digital increasingly seeps into our communities, identities and culture, these works make visible the shifts in power that result.

BLEED is made up of new art across various platforms that seek to stretch our understanding of the moment in which we find ourselves. The project will explore different models of sharing art, and in the process celebrate the spaces contemporary art is claiming within a digital public sphere. BLEED will encourage different modes of listening, watching and playing, while still asking the question: where, when and how do we come together?

Arts House and Campbelltown Arts Centre are working in partnership to redefine how Australian performance can be co-created, with residencies, research and presentations taking place across both physical sites and online. Between the beating heart and technology’s bleeding edge, this is art as the pulse of tomorrow.

BLEED Vol 1. takes place from 22 June  to 5 July 2020 at Arts House, Campbelltown Arts Centre, online, in the flesh and in your pocket.

Arts House and Campbelltown Arts Centre acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands we work on, the Boon Wurrung and Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri) and the Dharawal people. We extend our respect to Elders past, present and future, while respecting custodians of the vast nations our digital platform reaches. We extend this acknowledgement to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, audiences and communities.
