What’s Art Got To Do With It?:
The Death and Rebirth of the Live Music Industry in Australia

27 September, 6 – 7pm

The 1970s. A thriving era for Australia’s live music industry. Any night of the week you could pop into a bar and stumble across some guy called Paul Kelly or some band called Cold Chisel. All you needed was good music and a drink. Sadly, the industry fell victim to the political movements of the 90s and many iconic Australian venues were forced to shut their doors.
Come on a historical journey through the decades of live music in Australia, its death and rebirth. Join us at the Adelaide City Library for this lively talk presented by Paraskevi Kontoleon, teaching academic at the UniSA School of Law and co-author of Music and the Law published by Federation Press. What’s Art Got To Do With It is delivered in partnership with the University of South Australia.

Like a Hi-Fi Paper Pop up Book or a low-tech hologram, the theatrical performance takes the audience on a journey inside worlds of animated universes as they unfold upon a giant 3-dimensional paper set. ROOMAN premiered at ARTS HOUSE in Melbourne before going on to tour in Slovenia, The Netherlands and New Zealand.

Atmospheric Pressure
Joe Felber

29 August – 29 September, 2019

The art of Joe Felber has developed as a significant practice over a lifetime spent living and working in cities and major art centres in Europe and America. Here in Adelaide we see the benefits of this time-honoured practice layered with the artist’s longstanding concerns.

Joe’s title piece in this exhibition is a result of constant change, mapping the rhythms with the disruption of the world in mind. Multiple records of atmospheric pressure might also be echoed in human emotional turbulence. Joe mimics the process – adding, subtracting, leaving it open to reflect the scientific evidence and the layered and integrated maps of an unsettled world.

Rethinking the Canvas
Lucia Dohrmann

29 August – 29 September, 2019

Lucia Dohrmann’s abstract paintings emphasise materiality and process. They reveal something hiding in plain sight – the nature and structure of artists’ canvas. Although always having been interested in painting, it was her early childhood associations with textile practices that have led her to rethink how painters’ canvases can be used to produce a work of art.

In Rethinking the Canvas, Lucia’s paintings explore and extend the possibilities of traditional painting materials. Repetitious handmade textile processes give a softness and warmth, creating tactile surfaces that mark the passing of laboured time. The works speak of the connections between pattern and repetition, textile techniques, and mathematical thinking. They occupy a space somewhere between painting and textiles. Lucia likes to describe them as paintings in the expanded field.

The Scene is the seen

Opening: Thursday 27th August, 6-9pm
Ekphrasis workshop: Saturday 31st August, 1:30-2:30pm
No Wave poetry night: Thursday 12th September, 6-7pm
Performance night: Saturday 21st September, 6-9pm

This exhibition, performance and critical writing event of emerging and mid-career South Australian practitioners explores the potent relationship between text and art. Responding to a curated selection of writing from notable artists and theorists, each artist will conceive an ambitious work that transforms meaning and translation whilst echoing the principles of the original text. Each piece of writing touches on themes of ongoing critical and artistic concern – melancholia, displacement, identity, culture and language. For this exhibition artists will be challenged to experiment with the very process of art making whilst considering the creative potential of language.

The performance night will include a succession of performances amongst the exhibited works. A series of curated public programs will further explore the themes of the exhibition including a poetry night lead by No Wave collective and an Ekphrasis workshop delivered in partnership with Writers SA and SALA.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a full colour catalogue and essay from co-curator Rayleen Forester and poetry from Unbound Collective.

Opening: 15 August 2019

Idolatrous Centralis is the exploration of emotive responses towards creative individuals who inevitably push boundaries within a personal environmental context. Whether these creative individuals are musicians, designers, artists or poets, there is a common thread of energy, which can transform thinking and open up a dialogue of intrigue, mystery and radical interpretation of a lived environment. The artists will interpret whimsical corners of these worlds in the production of artworks to showcase for this exhibition.

Collaboration plays an important part in my work and I make particular mention of master-potter Mark Heidenreich (collaboration in the pair of Chintz vases) and sculptor Andrew Stock. Scale ranges from modest to magnified, from seriously elaborate to designs off-set by touches of surreal whimsy.”
