ISSUE 29 LAUNCH: ART GALLERY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA 2020 Biennial of Australian Art: MONSTER THEATRES
VAULT Magazine launched its 29th Issue at the Art Gallery of South Australia on Friday 7th February 2020.
The first event for our 2020 Program Series, the launch included a thought-provoking discussion in preparation for the 2020 Adelaide Biennial of Australian art, MONSTER THEATRES. As part of AGSA’s up late program, First Fridays, the discussion brought together 2020 Adelaide Biennial Curator Leigh Robb and Biennial artists Julia Robinson, Mark Valenzuela and Yhonnie Scarce, chaired by VAULT Editor Alison Kubler. The panel discussion was preceded by an introduction from AGSA Director Rhana Devenport ONZM.
Marking the 30th anniversary of the Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art, the nation’s longest running survey of Australian Art, the discussion critically engaged with the 2020 Biennial’s central themes: technological omnipresence, the body and the need to question our relationship with environment.
