In 2020, the Adelaide Biennial celebrates a 30-year milestone as the nation’s longest-running curated survey of contemporary Australian art. Since 1990, the Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art has created career-defining opportunities for more than 350 artists and presented to close to one million visitors .
Titled Monster Theatres, the 2020 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art invites artists to make visible the monsters of our time. Curator Leigh Robb says, “Monsters ask us to interrogate our relationships with each other, the environment and technology. They force us to question our empathy towards difference across race, gender, sexuality and spirituality”.
COVID-19 UPDATE: The Art Gallery of South Australia will reopen its doors to the public on Monday 8 June. Monster Theatres will be extended until Sunday 2 August. AGSA continues to offer experiences of its collection, exhibitions and key programs online through podcasts, videos and interactive encounters, events and activities.
Virtual tours, artist talks and curator talks are all available on the gallery website. View exhibition here.
