Visual Arts Program
In celebration of the Adelaide Festival's 50th year, 2010 marks a new direction for the Visual Arts Program. We are delighted to announce the inaugural Adelaide International. Developed in collaboration with five of Adelaide's contemporary arts organisations, the 2010 exhibition is entitled Apart, we are together, and addresses the theme of the Festival: the heart.
In addition, two other major exhibitions are central to our program. Audiences will once again see the latest developments in contemporary Australian art in the 2010 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Before & After Science at the Art Gallery of South Australia. The Festival is also especially pleased to work with Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute who present Brisbane's provocative artist collective, proppaNOW.
Artists' Week 2010 has a new look and location this Festival. Titled Art in the Global Present and located in UniSA's Hawke Building, this four-day symposium considers some of the most significant questions for contemporary art today: the global, collaborative, virtual and intangible.
Join us for what promises to be a dynamic, open and urgent program!

The Adelaide Festival is proud to announce a major new partnership between the University of South Australia and the Festival's 2010 Visual Arts Program. The partnership will create dynamic new possibilities for the visual arts at Festival time, and add tremendous depth to the cultural mix. Home to the exciting new Samstag Museum of Art, UniSA is a leading provider of visual arts education in South Australia. The new partnership will push boundaries, and grow the cultural horizon of Adelaide.
