Protest Signs – Kate Just

7 April – 7 May

PROTEST SIGNS are a series of intensively produced, hand-knitted pictures of protest signs mounted on canvas and wooden boards. Each picture or sign forms a knitted homage to a real image of protest the artist has collected on and offline including from social media, news media or real protests. This suite of knitted protest signs addresses a broad range of significant social and political issues of our time including feminism, sexual harassment and assault, reproductive freedom, LGBTQIA+ pride and discrimination, racism, sexism, transphobia, and ecological crisis.

INVISIBILITY

1 February – Late November

INVISIBILITY is everywhere. It’s the people we don’t notice, the environmental changes we can’t see, and the algorithms working hard behind the scenes. What becomes visible when we start paying attention?

In MOD.’s new exhibition, we’re shining a spotlight on the unseen to help us better understand the world around us and our place in it. 

Join us as we time travel underground, delve into the tech monopolies controlling our lives, and slow down to notice the importance of the land around us.

The Patch // When Observations Become Form

5 – 27 May 

Rosina Possingham & Lee Salomone

The Patch is a new body of work by artist Rosina Possingham, combining 3D scanning technology with the alternative analogue printing process: cyanotype.

When observations become form draws upon what journalist Stan Grant refers to as the three founding realities that comprise Australia: First Nation People, the British tradition, and the richness of migration. A fourth thread evolved during the exploration of the works – the Australian landscape itself.

2022 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Free/State

4 March – 5 June

Free/State assembles a group of artists who are fearless; the provocateurs, vanguards and outsiders – challenging histories and art forms, and in the process, offering reflections on an era of multi-faceted global upheaval. The exhibition explores ideas of transcending states, from the spiritual and artistic to the psychological, and embraces notions of freedom in expression, creation and collaboration.

Delivering new and unexpected visions of transformative personal and public moments, in mediums spanning photography, painting, sculpture, installation and the moving image, Free/State presents a multi-generational collective of artists hailing from every Australian state and territory.

As curator Sebastian Goldspink explains, ‘Each of these artists is emblematic of the many divergent facets of contemporary Australian art. Diversity is embraced and celebrated in Free/State and the exhibition is reflective of a nation still in the throes of grappling with its past and defining its future.’

Samstag’s Autumn Program

Samstag’s Autumn Season brings together the work of Isaac Julien (UK), Helen Fuller with Khai Liew (AUS) and Daniel Jaber (AUS).

In Gallery 1 & 2 Samstag is honoured to present two spellbinding works by internationally celebrated artist Isaac Julien, an acclaimed UK artist and filmmaker with career links to Australia, presented concurrently for the 2022 Adelaide and Perth Festivals. Julien is world-renowned for arresting works that bring together baroque pageantry and metaphor.

In Gallery 3 we see new work by Helen Fuller with the ambitious exhibition design of Khai Liew. Materially driven, Fuller approaches ceramics in a manner she likens to painting, centred about characteristics of form rather than the function of the vessel. Developed for the Adelaide Festival, Fuller’s new body of work will see a series of hand-built terracotta objects exploring connections to geological and social time, and the object as a cultural and anthropological artefact.

On Saturday 5 March from 10am, Daniel Jaber will perform Rite over a seven hour period. Bringing together contemporary dance, improvisation, living sculpture and installation in a study of the efforts of suppression and the weight of carrying guilt and shame. This one day event is not to be missed. Created & Performed by Daniel Jaber with sound artist Adam Ritchie.
