Tarnanthi: Open Hands

16 October, 2020 – 31 January, 2021

Open Hands is this year’s inspiring focus exhibition of Tarnanthi, the Art Gallery of South Australia’s annual celebration of contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art.

Open Hands pays tribute to the work of senior artists who pass on vital cultural knowledge to younger generations as the future leaders of their Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Through the act of making, they channel deep connections to Country and culture as they relate knowledge and expertise, stories and experiences.

Through a variety of media – including painting, works on paper, photography, moving image, sound installation, weaving, ceramics and sculpture – Open Hands honours the ongoing and often unseen work of women in communities to maintain culture. Keeping these stories alive and sharing knowledge is deeply embedded in everyday cultural life across Australia.

If the future is to be worth anything: 2020 South Australian Artist Survey

12 September – 12 December

Recent events have exposed how truly our lives are enmeshed with those of others – with potential for support and harm in both a micro and macro sense. What brings together the artists featured in this exhibition is an engagement with a world beyond art, directed towards thoughtful and productive experimentation, the re-imagining of self and structures, and creative tactics for strength, vulnerability and survival.

If artists can show you the world as they see it, what we learn from a project that situates itself here, in South Australia, is about new and local perspectives on the way culture is formed, how art is made and what counts as art.

If the future is to be worth anything: 2020 South Australian Artist Survey celebrates the breadth of art practice and critical perspectives emerging from South Australia’s artistic communities. Presented in partnership with SALA – South Australian Living Artists Festival, this major exhibition outcome for ACE Open will support ten artists/collectives based in South Australia to present ambitious new work commissions. The Survey has been developed through state-wide research and studio visits led by ACE Open’s Artistic Director, Patrice Sharkey, and Curator-in-Residence, Rayleen Forester.

Monika Morgenstern, Fenestra

24 September – 24 December, 2020

In her art practice Monika Morgenstern researches mystical experiences and encounters with the numinous. She aims to bring to light something that does not exist in an accepted paradigm. She uncovers and reveals how the mystical exists in present-day society, and how these issues may be in presented in a contemporary art context.

Her artworks rely on the interaction of light, space and the viewer. The work is not about the object itself, but rather about perception; the viewer becomes a participant through their gaze. Monika is interested in the interchange between the viewer and the work and regards it as integral to the success of her practice.

Love in the time of COVID-19

from 4 September, 2020

LOVE IN THE TIME OF COVID-19 is an innovative contemporary art project that provides a marker for the extraordinary state of the world in 2020. Organised through GAGPROJECTS, Adelaide, artists were invited to contribute works in response to the pandemic, as a way of sharing art in difficult and isolating times. Their images present a diverse range of responses to the crisis, reflecting the uncertainties, fears and hopes of this time.

The project resulted in 133 prints by Australian and international artists, which were viewable online and available to purchase individually as on-demand digital prints through GAG PROJECTS. Seen in its entirety for the first time at AGSA, this important series has been acquired for the collection through the generous support of Susan Armitage.

Chromatopia

from 4 September, 2020

Francis Bacon famously wrote that ‘all colours will agree in the dark’. The painter’s enigmatic quip hints at the effect that colours have on each other, and on us. This display explores how and why artists use colour – for personal, political, philosophical or perceptual purpose.

Chromatopia features recently acquired works by international and Australian contemporary artists, including Virginia Cuppaidge, Jitish Kallat, Tracey Moffatt and Gareth Sansom, but was inspired by a rarely seen work acquired more than half a century ago. Harvest, painted by Dame Laura Knight on the cusp of the Second World War, is a tonic for our times and the inspiration behind this spectral journey.

Taiwan Ceramics Biennale 2020

20 November, 2020 – 9 May, 2021

Gus Clutterbuck’s porcelain installation work, “Master of the Rocks 1 & 3 is a finalist in the Taiwan Ceramics Biennale 2020 exhibition and international competition, and will be presented at the New Taipei City Yingge Ceramics Museum, Taiwan.

This major international exhibition will be showcased from Nov 20th 2020 – May 9th 2021, and features the works of 100 selected artists from around the world. Gus is one of only two Australians selected for the final exhibition and his work, “Master of the Rocks 1 & 3” is now part of the Yingge Ceramics Museum collection.

This large scale porcelain installation is a culmination of his research and passion for Chinese painting, with the aim of creating porcelain in an expanded field.

Gus says,

“The spirit of my work is in a romantic tradition inspired by Chinese symbolism and based on a historic early Qing dynasty porcelain, “Dish with a painted Landscape”, held in the collection of the Keramiekmuseum Princesshoff, Netherlands.”

A printed image of this work forms a background with decorated sculptural forms that overlay and reinterpret this work. Master of the Rocks was originally shown as part of his solo exhibition “Falling”, at MEOU Art Museum, Shanghai in November 2018.

The Opening Ceremony for TCB 2020 has been cancelled and travel not possible due to the Pandemic but works from the exhibition and short videos will be shared here: https://public.ceramics.ntpc.gov.tw/en/index.html#firstPage

The Exhibition Brochure can be viewed here: https://public.ceramics.ntpc.gov.tw/pdf/展覽摺頁.pdf

Gus is opening up his home studio to visitors as part of the Australian Ceramics Open Studios Weekend 2020.

Come and visit the Back Deck studio, DIY, makeshift, quirky and chaotic with an interesting collection of works from China, sculptural surprises and current commissions.

Carl Kuddell, Lyn Lovegrove Niemz, Jen Lyons-Reid, Deborah Prior, Clyde Rigney Jnr, Cedric Varcoe, Felix Weber: _this breath is not mine to keep

7 November – 6 December, 2020

Curated by Jen Lyons-Reid and Carl Kuddell, this exhibition interrogates how everyday supremacy thinking manipulates our emotions, conceals systemic injustice and sabotages acts of solidarity. Globally we are witnessing the extinction of our world, and yet we continue to fuel our demise, so how do we notice our involvement, disrupt the stasis and rewrite the rules?

_this breath is not mine to keep is a provocative multi-arts experiment exploring ten stages of grief, delusions of supremacy and the existential joy of life. Ten co-creative installations, including sculptures, bio-art, multimedia, painting and poetry, form an arts trail linking four public galleries in South Australia, from September 2020 – January 2021, with print and online publications.

At Fabrik Arts + Heritage in Lobethal, textiles, concrete, wool, multimedia and barbed wire are used to explore denial, blame, despair and notions of comfort.

JamFactory Icon 2020 Tom Moore: Abundant Wonder

9 October – 22 November, 2020

JamFactory’s Icon series is an annual solo exhibition celebrating the achievements of South Australia’s most influential visual artists working in craft-based media. Tom Moore’s engaging, sophisticated and technically challenging hybridised animal/plant sculptures – and the fantastical worlds they inhabit – are embedded in the history of glassmaking and scientific discovery. His artworks are disarmingly playful in their use of narrative to critique the pressing social and environmental concerns of our contemporary epoch.

Robyn Stacey, as still as life

9 October – 22 November, 2020

Robyn Stacey: as still as life leads audiences into the tantalising world of the still-life tradition.

Stacey is one of Australia’s leading photographic artists whose fascination with the still-life genre inspired the selection of works for this exhibition. Through the contemporary medium of photography Stacey brings historical collections to life on a monumental scale, interrogating what these collections may have meant for their original owners and interweaving personal historical narratives.

Curated by Anouska Phizacklea.

MGA is unique among Australian cultural organisations with a dedicated focus on the collection of Australian photography. It is custodian of some 3,400 nationally significant photographic works.

MGA acknowledges City of Monash and Creative Victoria for the support of this exhibition.

Restless Dance Theatre, Seeing Through Darkness

from 4 September, 2020

Directed by Michelle Ryan of Restless Dance Theatre, Seeing Through Darkness responds through performance to the work of Expressionist artist Georges Rouault. As Ryan states, the imperfect form of the body and the troubled soul of the work resonate with how people with disability can feel and be perceived. Some may be confronted while others may see beauty in difference.

Seeing through Darkness is an immersive experience, one that is both a participatory exhibition and a fifteen-minute performance, in which elements of dance, music, lighting design and moving image are assembled. Outside performance times, visitors will be able to transform the space themselves – by means of their own shadow, cast in vibrant colour in overlapping arcs on gallery walls.

Sue Ninham, The Dark Stones

2 October – 20 November, 2020

In January 2020 Sue Ninham undertook a two-month international, artist residency in the remote coastal town of Skagaströnd, Iceland . Whilst there she immersed herself in daily, experimental practice in response to the extraordinary winter landscape. The isolation she experienced elicited strong, emotional responses and a discovery of personal and creative clarity. ‘The Dark Stones’ represents her personal journey and a process of healing brought about in that place.

16 October – 28 November, 2020

Amos Gebhardt presents Small acts of resistance, an expansive new multi-channel video installation demonstrating the power of kinship and community.

Across three screens, we witness acts of communal care play out within a variety of Australian contexts. Gebhardt uses portraiture, dance, song and play to tell stories of survival, strength and evolution as a means by which to celebrate more expansive notions of being. Animal and plant worlds coalesce, highlighting our similarities when it comes to small acts of resistance.

Anne Wallace, Strange Ways

16 October – 28 November, 2020

Strange Ways is the first major survey exhibition of Samstag scholar Anne Wallace, and includes works from the early 1990s through to the current day. Born and raised in Brisbane in the 1970s and now based in Melbourne, Wallace’s highly accomplised figurative paintings are as much about the textural as the pictorial.

Wallace has an uncanny ability to tap into shared psyches, drawig upon the language of pop culture to combine the familiar with the unfamiliar. The moments conjured capture a tension between the real and imagined; there is sexual and social confusion, vulnerabilty and violence, alienation and lonliness, feelings of abject, and fantasies of power and revenge.

Spanning thre decades and bringing together works from public and private collections, this is the most comprehensive survey of Wallace’s practice to date.

Converging Currents: Bark painting from Arnhem Land

from 4 September, 2020

Converging Currents presents key works from the Gallery’s collection by artists from across Arnhem Land – from the stone country of the Bininj Kunwok people in the west to the saltwater homelands of the Yolŋu in the northeast.

In Arnhem Land, as in many Aboriginal societies, knowledge is shared through the act of making and by passing on important protected cultural stories from one generation to the next. Displayed to reveal specific intergenerational groupings, this exhibition of more than thirty bark paintings and sculptures affirms the continuity of culture across time and place.

Integral to the display is a series of new acquisitions that further highlight important cultural and familial lineages and creative relationships between artists.

Andrew Stattmann, Landscapes, Interiors and the Odd Animal

3 November – 6 December, 2020

Andrew is an Adelaide Hills resident who primarily draws landscapes, but also interiors and still life. He works in the en plein air tradition (outdoors), and is always entertained by the side of the road chats he has with passers-by who wonder what he’s doing. Among other things, he has been mistaken for a stalker, a burglar, and an inspector from the water board. Andrew graduated from North Adelaide School of Art in 1998, and has exhibited since winning the Novice Section of the Balaklava Art Prize in 1994. He has a long association with the Hahndorf Academy, winning numerous prizes, including the Heysen Prize for landscape in 1999 and more recently was Highly Commended in the Adelaide Hills Landscape Art Prize. He was also pleased to be invited to exhibit in the 2019 Kedumba Drawing Award. He is primarily concerned with line, and has been known to spend hours constructing a drawing as a background for a nice shaped line.

War and Pieced: The Annette Gero Collection of Quilts from Military Fabrics

10 September – 19 December, 2020

War and Pieced brings the art form of ‘military intarsia’ quilts back to vivid life with some 25 breathtaking examples primarily from the Napoleonic Wars through the Crimean War of the mid-19th century to the late 19th century British colonial wars in India and southern Africa. In Adelaide, they are joined by military portraits, uniforms and Napoleonic prisoner-of-war items.

‘Military intarsia’ quilting is a craft that was widely practised in European armies of the 18th century before spreading to Britain in the 19th century. Scraps of discarded military and dress uniforms made from felted wool often no more than a couple of centimetres in size were repurposed to construct spellbinding textile mosaics with the most intricate and beautiful geometric patterns. Each piece is laid flat, in a fashion similar to marquetry or intarsia woodwork, and in some examples the quilt is built-up with layers of fabric, embroidery or beads to create flags, uniformed figures, coats of arms and more.

These rare military quilts stand as a testament that beauty can still be derived from the most terrible of circumstances.

Online recording of Megan Cope’s work ‘Untitled (Death Song)’

When Rio Tinto blew up the 46,000-year-old Juukan Gorge rock shelters in the Pilbara in May, the traditional owners of the land, the Puutu Kunti Kurrama people, told the ABC they were in mourning.

They were “deeply troubled and saddened” by the mining megacorp’s act of destroying this place of significance, severing a millennia-long tether to the land and their past.

 

Megan Cope’s work ‘Untitled (Death Song)’ captures this pain – but also extends beyond it.

“People say ‘Wow, it’s like you predicted Rio Tinto,’” Megan tells CityMag, “but colonialism is predictable. It’s predictable because it’s violent.”

The Quandamooka woman and artist responded to the 2020 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art Monster Theatres theme with ‘Untitled (Death Song)’, a piece that is an extension of a previous work, ‘Old Kahibah’, but with a new twist.
