A Hyper Real experience

The National Gallery of Australia is the creative alternative for your next event. Combine ART & FOOD in the heart of Canberra. It is the perfect place for conferences, annual general meetings, workshops, presentations, product launches, corporate and private functions and more.

Welcome to humanity amplified. This spring surprise your guests with a levitating man, a genetically engineered baby and towering giants. The National Gallery of Australia’s upcoming blockbuster exhibition Hyper Real features uncanny figures with painted silicon skin, glass eyes, human hair and cutting-edge digital art. From eerily lifelike sculptures to out-of-this-world virtual reality, this major exhibition provokes reflection, fascination, fear and joy and explores the question: ‘what makes us human?’
