Samstag Museum of Art is proud to present a major exhibition by Louise Haselton, one of South Australia’s pre-eminent contemporary artists and the feature artist of the 2019 South Australian Living Artist Festival (SALA).

Over twenty-five years, Haselton has established a predominantly sculptural practice in which no material is off-limits. By exploring aesthetic connections between seemingly disparate material vernaculars, she offers glimpses of the curious inner life of everyday and overlooked things. With a distinctive intuition, Haselton’s practice is exemplary of an artist especially attuned to the matter of our world.

Centred on new work, like cures like is an exhibition that draws together the enduring concerns evident in Haselton’s oeuvre — revealing an artist who inspirationally illuminates the liveliness and communicative power of inanimate objects, and the invisible forces that bind and repel the world around us.

Coinciding with the publication the 2019 SALA monograph Louise Haselton: Act Natural, the Samtag Museum of Art is proud to direct timely and important attention to an artist at a pivotal moment in her career, in a major exhibition that reflects our enthusiastic commitment to reciprocating the ambition of South Australian contemporary art and artists.
