Events & Exhibitions

5 – 28 July >> “Hope” Is The Thing With Feathers: Neami Exhibition

Presented by The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre and Neami National, this Kerry Packer Civic Gallery exhibition features artworks by emerging artists who attend the Visual Art Programs run by Neami National, a community mental health service supporting people to achieve mental and physical wellbeing. Through a contemporary lens, artists have reflected on Emily Dickinson’s poem, “Hope” is the thing with feathers (1891). Exploring the poem’s themes, their artwork expresses an optimism for the future and marvels at how hope can survive even in the face of significant adversity. The artists have created a diverse and uplifting body of work based on their individual and collective art practices.

7 July – 13 August >> Scripture for a smoke screen: Episode 1 – dolphin house

Part of an ongoing body of work by Amrita Hepi; a series that deals with the dilemma of authenticity and how language operates and obscures, Episode 1 – dolphin house is about the language of desire and takes its departure point from Dr John Lilly and Margaret Lovatt’s 1963 NASA-funded “dolphin house” experiment. Commissioned by ACMI and Samstag Museum of Art/University of South Australia presented at SASA Gallery, City West.

Friday 7 July >> Nunga Screen

Celebrate First Nations culture at this annual event that shares powerful First Nations stories of family, friendship, healing, belonging and their connection to the land and culture. This year’s screening features nine short films from emerging and established First Nations artists, ranging from animation, sci-fi, drama, and documentary. This event at the Mercury Cinema, Adelaide, is hosted by Ngarrindjeri man Josh Trevorrow, filmmaker and Country Arts SA’s First Nations Arts & Cultural Manager, who will also facilitate a Q&A session at the conclusion of the films.

Thursday 27 July >> The Art of Risk: Dr Richard Harris SC, OAM In-Conversation with Julia Lester

Dive into the world of risk-taking with Thai Cave Rescuer and joint 2019 Australian of the Year, Dr Richard 'Harry' Harris SC OAM. In conversation with journalist Julia Lester he will recount the stories of other people who regularly risk their lives and will explain what we can learn from the world's leading risk-takers. This conversation will give us insights into what motivates these people and why a life without risk is no life at all. Presented by The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre.

2 – 30 August >> Artists on the Inside Exhibition

Artists On The Inside presents artwork created by adults incarcerated in South Australia’s prisons. The works allow contributors to participate in the community both as prisoners and as artists, using art as the medium to create and share stories. In taking on the role of artists, prisoners challenge themselves to think differently about their relationships with the self, the community and culture. This exhibition provides an opportunity for prisoners to express creative talent and vision, and for visitors to reflect on their assumptions about prisoners and what can be achieved within institutions. Presented by The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre and the Department for Correctional Services in the Kerry Packer Civic Gallery as part of SALA Festival.
