SCI-FI: Mythologies Transformed

3 Aug 2024 – 30 Nov 2024

SCI-FI: Mythologies Transformed weaves together narratives found in the Western literary and cinematic genre of science fiction with ideas rooted in Eastern spiritual traditions that have evolved over millennia. Featuring contemporary artworks, film excerpts and historical artefacts, the exhibition adopts Western science fiction paradigms, such as parallel worlds and interdimensional travel, as a starting point to explore the genre’s possible roots in Asian philosophy and spirituality. Following the success of their first collaboration, MENTAL, Science Gallery, and the University of Melbourne are proud to collaborate again with the ArtScience Museum on the presentation of this exhibition.
