​Refined, mesmerising and psychologically complex, the artworks in Samstag’s Spring Season engage with the present moment, look back to the past and remind us of the rich and varied practices of artists living and connected to South Australia.


Samstag’s Spring Season continues our longstanding and distinguished artist-led series, focusing on new works by South Australian artists Amos Gebhardt and Kirsten Coelho.

Amos Gebhardt's Small acts of resistance is a work created through the inaugural South Australian Film Corporation and SALA Festival’s Artist in Residence commission.

Upstairs, 2020 SALA feature artist Kirsten Coelho presents Ithaca, a new installation of porcelain vessels influenced by the canonical Western text The Odyssey by Ancient Greek poet Homer.

Alongside these two exhibitions, Samstag is honoured to present the major survey exhibition Strange Ways by Samstag Scholar Anne Wallace in partnership with QUT Art Museum.

 

Samstag Museum of Art, University of South Australia, acknowledges the Kaurna people as traditional custodians of the land upon which the Museum stands.
