    Jen Mizuik, Experimenta Director, explains that the title of the exhibition, Speak to Me is an invitation to consider what it means to be together. The exhibition will explore how we communicate with one another in this time of ultimate interconnectivity. ‘We live in a time more dominated by communication than any before. At no other time in history have we been so connected. We can communicate across the world with anyone at any time. This year’s exhibition invites the viewer to question ideas around communication, intimacy and sharing of ideas in the world today. As technology continues to shape and infiltrate our lives in the 21st century, we have to consider how this influences our relationships, daily actions and the way we engage with our space and each other,’ says Ms Mizuik.
