Welcome

In 2024 the 29th International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA) will be held in Meanjin, on the lands of the Turrbal and Jagera peoples, the First Nations custodians of the lands and waters of Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, Australia. 

ISEA2024  is one of the most significant international gatherings of artists, researchers, and professionals in experimental and electronic media arts. This year, ISEA2024 welcomes over 600 delegates, with 400 attending in person and more than 200 participating virtually. The program features over 25 workshops, 200 talks and presentations, and showcases creative works from over 100 artists.

The symposium will provide a platform for individuals and organisations from around the world to engage in a conversation about the relationships between art, science and technology and diverse cultural approaches to knowing, sharing, and understanding our place and time within a rapidly changing world.

ISEA has a long history of bringing together scholars, artists, and scientists from around the world to explore the intersection of art, science, and technology. The symposium was first held in 1988 and has since become one of the most significant forums for exchanging ideas and presenting cutting-edge work in electronic art and related fields. What makes ISEA unique is how the symposium combines an academic conference with a creative program of exhibitions, performances, and workshops – bringing together artists, academics, theorists and creative technologists to share their research along with their latest prototypes, technological developments and creative works. 

 

ISEA2024 acknowledges the Turrbal and Yugara as the First Nations owners of the lands where the symposium will be held. We pay our respects to their elders, lores, customs and creation spirits. We also acknowledge and pay respects to all First Nations peoples across the continent and beyond Australian shores.
