'HEARTLAND is a great reminder of the incredible talent right here in our own backyard.' The Adelaide Review
HEARTLAND is an exhibition of contemporary art from South Australia that hopes to generate new ways of thinking about who and where we are.
It premieres new works of art made for the exhibition as well as selected works that have rarely been seen and includes Tjala artists from Amata, Kate Breakey, Kim Buck, James Darling and Lesley Forwood, Wendy Fairclough, Stewart MacFarlane, Ian North, Annalise Rees, Chris De Rosa, Yhonnie Scarce, Paul Sloan, Tjanpi Desert Weavers, Angela Valamanesh, Hossein Valamanesh and Amy Joy Watson.
Curated by Nici Cumpston, Curator of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art and Project Curator, Lisa Slade, HEARTLAND is a FREE exhibition thanks to the generous support of the South Australian Government. The exhibition is located in the temporary exhibition galleries of the Art Gallery. Accompanying the exhibition is a vibrant events program of tours, talks and hands-on arts activities.
