Contemporary research no longer recognises the stricture of an informing discipline or the limitations of an interpretative audience. We have moved on from working from inherited knowledges to working from the conditions of our lives. It is in fact our work, no longer distanced by illusions of objectivity, that has capacities to change those conditions through forms of direct engagement, both intellectual and cultural. The way we work now, refracted through a set of contemporary conditions and informed by a new vocabulary that goes beyond the critical, is a form of performative enactment.

COLOURS OF IMPRESSIONISM

Colours of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay 29 M a r ch – 29 J uly TI C K E T E D E X H I B ITI O N – E XC LU S I V E TO A D E L A I D E

From Manet to Monet, Pissarro to Morisot, Colours of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay recasts the story of French Impressionism as one of progressively intensifying chromatic brilliance. Along the way we encounter beer maids and bathing beauties, beach parties on the Normandy coast and regattas in Argenteuil. We see the rooftops of Paris crowned in snow, observe day-tripping flâneurs making the most of their leisure on a Sunday afternoon and witness the quiet daily routines of rural life. Spanning nearly sixty years and encompassing the work of more than twenty-five artists, Colours of Impressionism underscores the movement’s truly seismic nature, an upheaval that led to a redefinition of the parameters of painting and a rethink of the essence of vision. In their choice and application of pigments, as well as their novel approaches to subject matter and composition, the Impressionists brought modernity to life. Exclusive to Adelaide, this landmark exhibition comprises more than sixty-five paintings from the famed Musée d’Orsay on Paris' Left Bank and has been curated by Marine Kisiel and Paul Perrin of the Musée d’Orsay for the Art Gallery of South Australia. Organised by Musée d’Orsay, Art Exhibitions Australia and the Art Gallery of South Australia. Principal Sponsor Mazda. Principal Donor Singapore Airlines.

This series of interlocking displays highlight 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.

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.
