Adelaide Biennial Dark Heart

Adelaide Biennial 2014

Don’t miss the Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art at the Art Gallery of South Australia this Autumn. After 26 years, it remains the country’s longest running survey of contemporary Australian art and represents the Gallery’s dedication to showcasing up-to-the-minute works by Australian artists.

Curated by Art Gallery Director, Nick Mitzevich, Dark Heart presents more than twenty eight contemporary Australian artists and collectives, delivering their brave new visions in photography, painting, sculpture, installation and the moving image.

Tapping into the hearts and minds of the nation – Dark Heart probes the personal, political and psychological dimensions of contemporary Australia.

Featured artists include Ah Xian / Tony Albert / Brook Andrew / Del Kathryn Barton / Martin Bell / Ian Burns / eX de Medici / Shoufay Derz / Julia deVille / Dale Frank / Tony Garifalakis / Fiona Hall / Brendan Huntley / Kulata Tjuta Project, Tjala Arts / Rosemary Laing / Richard Lewer / Fiona Lowry / Dani Marti / Trent Parke / Ben Quilty / Caroline Rothwell / Alex Seton / Sally Smart / Ian Strange / Warwick Thornton / Lynette Wallworth, Antony and Martu artists

Patricia Piccinini’s Skywhale also will make an appearance in Adelaide over the opening weekend and the work of Adelaide based sculptor and installation artist Julia Robinson will reshape The Studio activity space.

‘In its 13th iteration the Biennial will tap into the hearts and minds of contemporary Australian society. I am after an inherently emotional and immersive exhibition, one that is unafraid to ask difficult questions and expose the underbelly of society.’ Nick Mitzevich

The Adelaide Biennial is a flagship visual arts event of the Adelaide Festival.
