Tandanya NACI and Adelaide Festival
A major exhibition of newly commissioned works by eight leading Australian Aboriginal artists and collectives. All four of Tandanya´s gallery spaces will present ambitious, conceptually rigorous and innovative works based in painting, fibre, glass, found objects, installation and moving image.
Six independent artists and two collectives have been commissioned to create new work, specific to notions outlined in the curatorial rationale. They are renown for the way their individual practices process and navigate complex and often painful realities of personal and collective displacement and abuse, by investigating and suggesting new ways to belong.
These artists range from emerging to established, with practices spanning painting, sculpture, glass, fibre, installation, moving image and performance. They hail from urban, regional and remote areas in South Australia, Tasmania, New South Wales, Northern Territory and Victoria.
