anything at all

14 August - 17 September 2016

anything at all is a major upcoming exhibition at Adelaide Central School of Art and is a feature event in the
2016 SALA Festival program. Held in Adelaide Central Gallery and the School’s Teaching & Studio Building from 14 August – 17 September, anything at all stands out among the 630 SALA Festival exhibitions with an impressive line-up of established and respected South Australian visual artists.

Curated by Adelaide’s renowned art writer and curator, John Neylon, the exhibition features Narelle Autio,
Deidre But-Husaim, Sasha Grbich, Aldo Iacobelli, Ian North, Sophia Nuske, Christopher Orchard and Geoff Wilson. It will be opened by Nick Mitzevich, Director of the Art Gallery of South Australia, on Tuesday 16 August.

anything at all explores the simple truth that art can come from, and be about, anything at all. It presents artists’ responses to moments in the everyday, when something familiar and normally taken for granted has become a catalyst to create. Objects, places and things, such as matches, urban scenery and telegraph poles, which are often overlooked for their ‘ordinary’ nature, are interrogated, reinvented and transformed in this extraordinary exhibition.

Opening event

Tuesday 16 August 2016, 6–8pm. All welcome, refreshments provided.
Opening speaker: Nick Mitzevich, Director of the Art Gallery of South Australia
