Rooms of wonder are unlocked in the 2016 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Magic Object.
The Biennial takes inspiration from the Wunderkammer, delving into a world of wonder and enchantment through the eyes of Australian contemporary artists. Magic Object will offer a space where free associations and insights are made possible by artists and audiences – the Wunderkammer offers itself up as tool with which to not only view the world, but to critique it.
Curator Lise Slade has selected exceptional artists working across a range of mediums including our own Abdul-Rahman Abdullah, Tom Moore, Chris Bond and Jacqui Stockdale. Other artists in the exhibition include Juz Kitson, Danie Mellor, Hiromi Tango and Michael Zavros.
Magic Object runs at the Art Gallery of South Australia from 27 February to 15 May 2016 as part of the Adelaide Festival of Arts.
