Sublimation: An exercise in the Immersive is an exhibition featuring a range of audio-visual works created by eight international artists, curated in response to the concept of the sublime. These works saturates the sonic and visual landscape, drenching and enveloping the audience and must be experienced to be truly understood.

On the opening day of Sublimation: An exercise in the Immersive the exhibition will be complemented by three live performances and an audio screening by ten international artists in the form of immersive sonic environments and contemplative sound sculpture.

The sensory environment of the exhibition, together with the live performances and audio screening, will envelop the audience in both an emotional and visceral experience: drawn equally from sonic and visual spectrums.
