2018 ADELAIDE BIENNIAL OF AUSTRALIAN ART: DIVIDED WORLDS
The second edition of the Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art will return from 3rd March to 3rd June 2018.
Inaugurated in 1990, it is Australia’s longest-running survey of contemporary Australian art and an important platform for Australian artists to realise new works and projects thanks to the support of local art institutions and spaces.
Titled Divided Worlds, the exhibition will explore themes of evolution, beauty and environment. Leading Australian contemporary artists and collectives, chosen by curator Erica Green, will present artworks, spanning the full spectrum of media including photography, painting, sculpture, installation and the moving image. John R. Walker, Christian Thompson, Daniel Boyd, and Louise Hearman are some of the thirty artists selected by the artistic director this year.
‘The curatorial premise, divided worlds, recognises that we live in troubled times, however, rather than foretelling conflict, my focus has been on assembling an exhibition that celebrates the enduring role of art and culture. Divided Worlds offers an opportunity to experience an alternative dimension –one where “difference” is the natural order of things, and a strength to be celebrated.’ Erica Green.
