In celebration of the Adelaide Festival’s 50th anniversary, the Visual Arts Program will inaugurate the Adelaide International 2010 with the exhibition: Apart, we are together, curated by Victoria Lynn.
The exhibition includes the work of eleven international artists and is supported by University of South Australia. Adelaide International 2010: Apart, we are together will consolidate the Adelaide Festival’s long history of engagement with contemporary art from around the world by addressing the theme of the heart. “The heart can take us in many directions, memory, secrets, longing, and emotional thresholds. It is with the heart that we forge aesthetics of courage and sustenance. What does it take to survive, to keep the heart going? What forms of resistance and resilience are at work”, says curator Victoria Lynn.
Lucy + Jorge Ortas' solo exhibition at the JamFactory will include sculptures and wall works from the series 70 x 7 The Meal and Nexus Architecture. The festival have commissioned the artists to create 10 enamelled aluminium sculptures, based on their longstanding work The Gift (Life Nexus) and the artists will create a new body of work Nexus Harnesses which includes photography work from the graduate students at London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London.
