Defining an Era – Artists of Adelaide
from The Riddoch collection
30 July - 25 September 2022 Margaret Scott Gallery
South Australia is a great state of creative wealth. Rather than being tied to the prevailing and rigid art histories of the eastern states, what emerged in the post-modern era (think 1980s) was a defiant, and urgent sense of art making. As your eagle eye will confirm, there are few visual parallels to draw between the artists on display here. Rather, what each artist has in common is that at some stage they have called Adelaide home, or indeed, still do.
Pursuing an artistic career in the competitive artworld is no mean feat, and each artist has equally achieved national success and recognition.
Drawn from the Riddoch collection, this exhibition is a showcase of South Australian creativity and independence.
