The 2014 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art taps into the hearts and minds of the nation – probing the personal, political and psychological dimensions of contemporary Australia. Titled Dark Heart, the 2014 Adelaide Biennial explores Australia’s cultural identity through the lens of some of Australia’s leading contemporary artists.
Dark Heart presents twenty eight contemporary Australian artists and collectives, delivering their brave new visions in mediums that include photography, painting, sculpture, installation and the moving image. The issues and ideas explored by the artists encompass intercultural relationships, our ecological fate, gender and political power.
As Curator and Art Gallery of South Australia Director Nick Mitzevich explains: ‘My focus is on assembling an exhibition that connects with the viewer and provides a moving experience’.
Dark Heart is presented in association with Adelaide Festival.
