International Digital Art

IDA is an independently curated new media art exhibition that is supported by Creative Industries, Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and the Beijing Film Academy (BFA) China.

IDA is an internationally touring exhibition of the moving image, new media art, interactive works and photomedia with a current focus on Australian and Chinese art. The exhibition program also takes a historical approach inviting those artists who are already contributing important work that appear on the contemporary art time-line, as well as supporting emerging artists in the area.

IDA is curated by Stephen Danzig (Founder and Director) and Dawei Xu (New Media Lecturer, Beijing Film Academy). The IDA exhibition design and project coordination is undertaken by Lubi Thomas (Public Programming Coordinator, Creative Industries Precinct, QUT) who is our point of contact for technical and logistical matters.

IDA exhibition comes at a time when Australian communities become increasingly aware of the importance of art and technology and the role it plays in cross-cultural relations within a global context.

It is frequently accessed by leading international museums, galleries, institutions, universities, writers, academics, artists, curators and media as an important resource in the area of research.
