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.

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.

Mary-Jean Richardson, Ancient & Modern

4 August – 2 October (extended)

For the 2020 South Australian Living Artist Festival, Adelaide Central School of Art takes great pride in presenting Mary-Jean Richardson’s new solo exhibition, Ancient & Modern.

This beautiful new body of work is a reflection on art history and the materials and processes of painting. The works cleverly mediate between abstraction and figuration, using a restrained palette to generate tactile and illusionistic surfaces. Prepare to be startled by the dynamic choreography of display, as the exhibition challenges the habitual ways in which we encounter paintings in a gallery environment.

Elegant and refined, Richardson’s new body of work is the product of an extended period of studio development. Ruminating on meaningful experiences in international galleries and museums, this show is a perfect antidote to our new locked-down reality.

Jo Fife, Sera Waters, Telling Tales – Limestone Coast community stitch project

1 August – 18 September, 2020

The Limestone Coast, from Mount Gambier to Bordertown, is rich with untold histories, strange happenings and tall tales: what curious tales do you know about your part of this vast region?

TELLING TALES is a community stitch project led by artists Jo Fife and Sera Waters. This is an opportunity for anyone with links to our beautiful region to share insights, knowledge, and tales from past happenings, passed along knowledge, family histories, regional species, weather events or mysteries that will become part of an unique artwork which may become part of the Riddoch Art Gallery collection.

TELLING TALES is for both beginner and experienced stitchers. Contributions can be as simple or complex as you choose. For inspiration and guides on basic stitches, how-to videos, tips and examples of completed tales can be found via the Telling Tales Facebook page at: @TellingTalesLimestoneCoast

TELLING TALES is a new partnership between Riddoch Art Gallery, Mount Gambier and Walkway Gallery, Bordertown. Supported by Country Arts SA.

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.

Enter Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Room

From her celestial Infinity Mirror Room to her expansive dot paintings, revolutionary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama creates art you remember. While it isn’t exactly the same as walking into one of her all-consuming installations, this 14-minute video created by The Broad Museum in LA (with a score by composer Geneva Skeen) is pretty stunning. It’s best watched in the dark.

Give Moma’s Virtual View series a whirl

New York’s Moma has some of the world’s most recognisable artworks – Van Gogh’s The Starry Night and Monet’s Water Lilies among them. While it’s closed it’s running a Virtual Views series, taking digital visitors through an exhibition or artwork via videos, Q&As with curators, playlists and articles. The first Virtual Views session on April 9 will revolve around the theme of home movies, inspired by the exhibition Private Lives, Public Spaces. Curators will guide audiences through the history and emotions behind amateur films, stream videos from the exhibition, and encourage viewers to make their own films at home. The museum has also compiled a playlist of songs about works of art, including Don McLean’s Vincent and Simon & Garfunkel’s So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright.

Dan Withey, Stay Positive

27 August – 25 September, 2020

In an increasingly negative world Dan’s mantra is to stay positive, never give up, do the best you can…and TRY NOT TO BE A DICK! (emphasis on try!). This show is a step into the strange mind of Dan Withey, a 34 year-old straight-white-guy. Who would think he’s interesting? Bear with us, it will be fun. Together, we will delve into the twisting labyrinth of the artist’s brain, through a maze of bold colours and eccentric characters. We take a look at work from Dan’s past and the present in this retrospective of thought. Traversing a range of contemporary issues, Withey parodies our current situation in an increasingly confusing and terrifyingly negative world.

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.

Brad Darkson, Hold Me

18 August – 18 September, 2020

In Hold Me, a sound work for 2020 Adelaide//International by Anglo-Australian and Narungga First Nations artist Brad Darkson, listeners are invited to listen in on a frustrated phone conversation between Darkson’s family and a Centrelink worker trying to unravel the ramifications of a robo-debt.

How long the listener waits – and to what end – is a part of this experiment in patience and frustration with systemic architectures highlighting the divide between domestic and bureaucratic identities.

Wendy Dixon-Whiley, Full Circle 1.0

2 June – 30 September, 2020

“The 20 drawings shown here are a natural conclusion of a body of work that commenced at a 2019 Arts Residency at La Macina Di San Cresci in Tuscany, Italy. The purpose of this residency was to continue my study of the classic poem ‘Inferno’ by the famous 13th century Tuscan; Dante Alighieri.

It was the aim of my time in Italy to be in the proximity of the famous poet whose writing was the ‘muse’ that guided me back to making art. Rather than aiming for a direct narrative representation of Dante’s famous circles of Hell, I chose to interrogate the bodily nature of each sin depicted within ‘Inferno’. In making the images I take ideas from my own imagination and tie them in to the time and place in which I commenced the body of work.

Throughout my research prior to and during the residency, I found a consistent theme whereby monotheistic religions viewed specific body parts as responsible for committing affiliated sins (for example; tongues committing blasphemy). I have used this idea as an alternative mode of expression of the narrative and in this way, the images become physical manifestations of the sins the body commits.

In my depiction of mildly comedic yet grotesque figures as vehicles for my ideas, I am attempting to domesticate a subject matter which would normally be taken as frightening and serious. In this way I am also sublimating my own thoughts and experiences with organised religion”

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.
