Gallery Insights 1, 2 and 3, 2020
Gallery Insights taps into a series of tours run by the Gallery’s Special Interest Groups (SIG), managed by Dianne Speck, the Gallery’s SIG Manager.
We start the year, in February, with a tour of the exhibition:
Adelaide Cool: The Abstract Art of David and John Dallwitz
This exhibition features the work of Adelaide father-and-son artists David and John Dallwitz and includes paintings, sculpture, moving images, photographs, textiles and jewellery. It celebrates the 50th anniversary of David’s milestone solo exhibition in Sydney. I am sure many of you will have strong memories of the ’60s with its adoption of strong colours and forms that challenged the status quo.
This tour will also include some works by other prominent Adelaide designers and artists, think, Khai Lew and Hossein and Angela Valamanesh.
In March the tour will offer scope for your guide to introduce:
New Works in AGSA’s Melrose wing
You may have noticed that new works are regularly being added to the walls of the gallery. These may be new acquisitions or works that have not been shown for some time. in either case, they have been carefully placed by the curator to enhance the viewers’ experience of the gallery and we want to share this with you.
In April the tour will be:
The 30th Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Monster Theatres
The Adelaide Biennial is the longest running curated survey of Australian Contemporary Art. In 2020 the curator, Leigh Robb, has invited artists to make visible the monsters of our time. Don’t be afraid.… what you can look forward to are works by many of the contemporary artists that you are familiar with from earlier exhibitions and their interpretation of contemporary issues which they want to make visible, to examine in an environment of social engagement that AGSA gallery space offers. Something to engage with!
