Founded by Stephen Danzig in 1999, IDAprojects was the first nexus of its kind providing a platform for academia, research technologies and professional art practices in building a new discourse. For the past eight years the IDA program has grown to feature a national and international touring exhibition with an aim to present leading artists from around the world who engage in new media arts and research technologies.

Launched in Brisbane on May 1, this year’s project reflects a global commitment to exploring cultural identity through leading professional arts practice in digital media from Curators Stephen Danzig, Lubi Thomas, Xu Da Wei, Matthew Perkins and Pauline Doutreluingne.QUT, in partnership with IDAprojects and the Beijing Film Academy has developed this international touring exhibition which will also be presented throughout Asia - including China and Japan – and will later include a tour of regional Australia.
