We’re excited to announce the commissioning of new artworks by seven contemporary artists that involve inflatables in a project titled ‘Conflated’. This new commission series seeks to answer: How can artists conflate new ideas with sculptures, performances or installations that are blown up?

A NETS Victoria initiative, conceived by Zoë Bastin and our Director Claire Watson, the new commissions have been made possible through funding from Creative Victoria’s Strategic Investment Fund and will see new works made by artists: Amrita Hepi, Bronwyn Hack, Christopher Langton, Eugenia Lim, James Nguyen, Steven Rhall and Zoë Bastin.
