Alycia Bennett – Face Value

Everyone loves a photo booth – but there’s more to this photo booth than meets the eye.

Encouraging audiences to participate in a continuous updating portrait, Alycia Bennett and Rei de Vries’ collaboration Face Value is an evolving and amalgamated reflection of our community. Taking each individual’s photo and adding it to the collective canvas, this photo booth creates a striking homogenised portrait, morphing and changing over time as more and more participants add their photo to the artwork. Be sure to stay for your portrait to be printed in this playful example of collective image making!

Cristina Metelli – Within the Landscape

South Australian artist Cristina Metelli’s creative work started early in life, exploring different approaches to drawing, sculpture and painting, each medium providing her with different ways of expressing her connection to nature. Focusing on her current abstract oil paintings as a source of inspiration, Within the Landscape takes advantage of Cristina’s experiments in digital projections to translate paint into light.

Vincent Namatjira – Going out Bush

A painter from Indulkana in South Australia’s Aṉangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Lands, Vincent Namatjira has established himself as a celebrated portraitist and a subversive chronicler of Australian history. He is an Archibald and Ramsay Art Prize winner, as well as being the great-grandson of the renowned Western Aranda artist Albert Namatjira.

In Going Out Bush the colonial façade of the Art Gallery of South Australia is temporarily relocated to the Central Australian desert.  Here, ‘out bush’, the building becomes a stage set for a vibrant and witty series of encounters where the Aboriginal flag takes pride of place and ghost gums grow as AGSA’s new architectural columns.
