Current Exhibition

On Elegance While Sleeping

This group exhibition draws together artists Sundari Carmody, Honor Freeman, Sasha Grbich, and Kynan Tan, who all use sleep as a material process in their work. The exhibition examines the links between biological and cosmological rhythms, the depths of unconscious knowledge and the twenty-first century tendency to quantify and commodify sleep. Featuring sculpture, video, scent, and light, this is an exhibition not to be missed!

On Elegance While Sleeping will open on Tuesday 9 June, and will be open Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm, until Friday 24 July.


Gallery for One

Adelaide Central School of Art is excited to launch our new initiative, Gallery for One. This programme will utilise spaces around the Teaching and Studios Building of the School to provide professional practicing artists with the opportunity to stage small solo exhibitions.

The cancellation of exhibitions and closure of galleries in response to the COVID-19 pandemic has seen professional opportunities in short supply, impacting artists’ livelihoods and audience enjoyment. This program is designed to provide artists with an additional income stream, while also increasing the vibrancy of our teaching spaces. 

Our initial offering includes exhibitions by Roy Ananda, Maxwell Callaghan, Helen Fuller, Anna Horne, and Cassie Thring. Please visit Administration to access the Teaching and Studios building.

Bookings are preferred, but not essential – please contact curator Andrew Purvis, at Andrew.purvis(at) to arrange a guided tour of our new exhibition On Elegance While Sleeping and our Gallery for One shows.


Virtual Exhibitions


Exhibitions are an important component in the learning environment of ACSA. Our exhibition program of local, interstate and overseas artists is carefully planned to challenge and inform both our students and the general public.
The program incorporates the ACSA's annual graduate exhibition, giving many students their first exposure in the world of professional practice.

Adelaide Central Gallery is free of charge, open to the public and we encourage school groups to visit. Exhibitions are often supplemented by talks and lectures featuring eminent artists, curators and academics.
