Curator of the 2018 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art Erica Green has announced the names of the 30 leading Australian contemporary artists and collectives selected for next year’s Adelaide Biennial. Kirsten Coelho has been selected to showcase her stunning ceramic works.
Erica Green says, ‘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.’
Extending across Adelaide’s cultural precinct, North Terrace, the 2018 Adelaide Biennial will be presented at the Art Gallery of South Australia, Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art at the University of South Australia, JamFactory and Santos Museum of Economic Botany in the Adelaide Botanic Garden. The 2018 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Divided Worlds runs from 3 March to 3 June 2018 as part of the Adelaide Festival.
