A NOTE FROM NICK The country is talking about TARNANTHI, so if you haven’t seen it, now is your chance. Our offerings over summer will continue to bring you the best in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and culture. One of our December highlights is a performance by Aboriginal hip-hop artist Radical Son at December’s First Friday. Come and hear from TARNANTHI artists Kent Morris, Dean Cross and Ricky Maynard and take part in our weaving masterclass led by the Erub Arts Collaborative – the artists responsible for transforming The Studio with woven ghost net sculptures. Thanks to the generosity of the James & Diana Ramsay Foundation, The Studio is open over the holiday period for art lovers of all ages. In January we’ll have a ‘month of Sundays’ with live music every Sunday afternoon. From one festival to another, in February we launch our Adelaide Fringe program on North Terrace. It will be illuminating! Nick Mitzevich Director Follow @nick_mitzevich on Instagram

COLLECTION & D I S P L AY S

Rethinking Australian Art N ow s how ing G A L L E R I E S 6 , 7 & 17 | F R E E E N TRY

This series of displays highlights the complex and radical changes that occurred in Australian art after the Second World War, including the revelation of Aboriginal art, the Feminist art movement and the rise of conceptual art and post modernism. This rehang challenges preconceptions of art in Australia as being isolated or singular. To borrow the words of art historian Ian McLean, the re-presentation of the collection ‘examine the place of Australia in the world and the world in Australia’.

N O RT H T E R R AC E | F R E E

To coincide with the reprint of the popular monograph, Dorrit Black: Unseen Forces, a selection of Dorrit Black’s colour linocuts are on display in the Atrium.

On the eve of the 2018 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Divided Worlds, Lindy Lee’s The Life of Stars, a six metre tall sculpture created in collaboration with UAP STUDIO, arrives on the North Terrace forecourt. Lit from within, the form glows as a back drop to the Adelaide Fringe Festival season.

Black was a leading Australian Modernist painter and printmaker who in 1927 studied linocut printmaking in London under the influential British printmaker Claude Flight. Inspired by Flight’s teachings and later by the Cubist principles of French artists André Lhote and Albert Gleizes, Black’s linocuts expressed the dynamism and rhythms of modern life.

This stellar monument will be accompanied by a new moving image work of art projected onto the Art Gallery’s façade that bestows the artist’s blessing of vitality and abundant energy on all who experience it.

The publication is available for purchase in the Gallery Store.

ADELAIDE BIENNIAL OF AUSTRALIAN ART: DIVIDED WORLDS 3 M a r ch – 3 J u ne 2018

Offering an intriguing encounter with contemporary Australian art, the Adelaide Biennial presents works by leading artists from across the country. As a series of exhibitions, Divided Worlds presents an allegory of human society. Meditating on beauty and the environment; the drama of the cosmos and evolution; the past and the future, Divided Worlds presents the artist as witness, chronicler and change agent. Extending across Adelaide’s cultural precinct, the 2018 Adelaide Biennial will be presented at the Art Gallery of South Australia, Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art, JamFactory, and the Santos Museum of Economic Botany as well as the Adelaide Botanic Garden.
