Awakening: Art of Buddhism presents the extraordinary heritage of Buddhist art from India, Burma, Thailand, Nepal, Tibet, China, Japan and contemporary Australia. ‘Awakening’ refers to the moment when Indian prince, Siddhartha, achieved enlightenment and became known as the Buddha. The sculptures, paintings and ritual artefacts in this display testify to the power of religious devotion as a source of inspiration for artists.

Embracing the 2017 NAIDOC Week theme of Our Languages Matter, this display reveals how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists have developed distinct visual languages to communicate country and culture.

Australia was ‘occupied territory’ when claimed by Europeans in the late eighteenth century – home to hundreds of Aboriginal nations. The colonisers in turn believed that they had ‘occupied’ territory, claiming the expansion of the British empire into the antipodes. This display presents works of art from the Gallery’s collection by Aboriginal and nonAboriginal artists who are keen to assert the sovereignty of First Nations and examine the legacy of colonisation.

For more than 40 years Linda Jackson has produced vivid textiles and garments incorporating native plants including eucalyptus, Sturt’s desert pea and acacia. In 1982 Jackson began a partnership with Aboriginal women at Utopia in the Northern Territory and together they created garments made from silk batik incorporating traditional designs.

Celebrating the centenary of a major bequest by Sir Samuel Way, a prominent South Australian lawyer, philanthropist and collector, who bequeathed 500 prints to the Gallery when he died in 1916. On display throughout the Melrose wing are key works from his bequest including 19th century French animal prints, British landscapes and 18th century etchings by Italian printmaker Piranesi. Find your way through the trail by locating the portrait of Sir Samuel Way on our wall labels.

Featuring dazzling coloured batik and printed textiles, this all-female artist display celebrates the traditions of Utopia and the talents of Linda Jackson.

G A L L E RY 17 | F R E E E N TRY

Drawing and the human form are Christopher Orchard’s twin passions. In the year 2000 a bald, portly, middle-aged man, described by Orchard as an avatar, started to appear in his work. This display includes several works featuring this avatar who, in Orchard’s own words, represents ‘the entire history of what it means to be human’.

This major new work by Reko Rennie initiates our re-hang of the Australian Art collection. Largely autobiographical, his commanding works combine the imagery of his Kamilaroi heritage, merging traditional diamond-shaped designs, hand-drawn symbols and repetitive patterning to subvert romantic ideologies of Aboriginal identity.

Orchard is the feature artist for this year’s South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival and the subject of a major publication by Wakefield Press.

Reko Rennie will be painting live in the Gallery from 13–18 June.

Come in and create figurative sculptures exploring scale, proportion, movement and emotion. From Rodin’s refusal to use traditional plinths through to hand-carved, mirrored and textured plinths that function as works of art in their own right, artists have constantly challenged our ideas about art and the best ways to display it.

COMING SOON

Re-thinking Australian Art Fr om 2 S e pte m b e r 2017 G A L L E RY 6 | F R E E E N TRY

In a year that marks the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Referendum, which resulted in constitutional rights for Australia’s first people, the Gallery will re-present its Australian collection. This series of new 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 postmodernism.

The rehang will challenge 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 will ‘examine the place of Australia in the world and the world in Australia’.
