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.

Ngalya/Together is an exhibition of collaborative lighting designs involving designers Koskela and artists at six Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art centres. The exhibition highlights contemporary transformations taking place in Indigenous fibre arts and cultures across Australia.
Ngalya is the word for ‘both’ in the Dharug language from the Sydney region, and this term has been interpreted and translated in different ways by the ten languages represented by the participating artists.
The exhibition celebrates and expands on the spirit of collaboration and knowledge exchange that began a decade ago for Koskela, when it first worked with and learned from the weavers of Elcho Island Arts during the development of new illuminated woven forms for the 2010 exhibition Yuta Badayala (In a New Light).
Ngalya seeks physically and conceptually to illuminate these profound works and the cultures from which they come.

This exhibition is the work of 14 emerging and established artists from Rajasthan (India) and South Australia who came together in the City Palace, Jaipur, to investigate the notion of a sister-state. Each of the 42 works, including painting, photography, prints, animation, video and sound and soft and metal sculpture has multiple authors. The collaborative, de-colonial inspired process was driven by the Indian artists and resulted in rich dialogue and ambitious artworks.
