SASA Gallery

The SASA Gallery (South Australian School of Art Gallery) is an outreach and exhibition facility within UniSA's School of Art, Architecture & Design. The Gallery's exhibition, publication and external scholar programs focus on innovative contemporary art, architecture, design, curatorial and writing practices. The SASA Gallery's exhibition and publication programs seek to position the artists, designers and researchers we work with in a national and international context, engage with critical dialogue and debate, and enable artists, designers, curators and writers to generate new art and new ideas. As  an active site of teaching and learning SASA Gallery supports the full range of taught programs within the School and has a strong outreach program with free exhibitions, events, gallery floortalks and guest lectures open to the public.

  

Spectra 2018
The Art and Consequence of Collaboration 
Curated by Experimenta
hosted by ANAT

Exhibition: 4–26 October 2018
Opening: Thursday 11 October, 6 – 8pm

Featuring: Robert Andrew, Keith Armstrong, Leah Barclay, David Haines, Leah Heiss, Chris Henschke, Joyce Hinterding, Baden Pailthorpe, Helen Pynor, Erica Seccombe And Martin Walch. 

The Art and Consequence of Collaboration is a group exhibition illustrating the extraordinary creative potential of art and science research collaborations. From a reimagined periodic table of elements, to the re-staging of an AFL game using GPS and performance data, to the visceral and earthy scent of gaseous rocks, each of the works selected provokes us into new ways of experiencing and interpreting the world around us.

Experimenta is excited to be working with our colleagues at ANAT on Spectra 2018, Australia’s pre-eminent art/science gathering showcasing the best research and creative work being produced through interdisciplinary collaborations between Australian artists and scientists.

Spectra 2018 explores the increasing convergence of art and science and considers how each area impacts the other and how, together, they shed light on who we are and where we’re heading. Taking place in Adelaide, South Australia, the inaugural Spectra will comprise a three-day symposium presenting collaborative research, an exhibition showcasing research outcomes, and a compelling public program of screenings, talks, performances and special events.

Spectra 2018 is proudly presented by the Australian Network for Art and Technology (ANAT), in partnership with the University of South Australia and Experimenta Media Arts, in association with colleagues from the arts and science sectors, and with additional support provided by Arts South Australia.
