Georgina Mills: Reframing

Roman Room - 2 August - 3 September 2022 - Free exhibition

In conjunction with the South Australian Living Artists Festival, Adelaide sculptor Georgina Mills presents recent work in ReframingReframing aims to influence the viewer’s position on classical art in Australia and to see it placed amongst the contemporary art scene. A progression of sculptures illustrate Georgina Mills’ figurative development from her studies at Florence Academy of Art and Post-graduation artist residency in Italy to her current work created in Adelaide.

Reframing is an opportunity for Georgina to hold a ‘mirror’ to her growth as an artist and for us all to more fully appreciate figurative sculpture. See how her academic training in Florence has informed and changed to meet her current environment in Australia.

The South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival is a statewide festival of visual art established in 1998 to promote and celebrate the many talented visual artists in South Australia. Each year, SALA takes the work of around 8,000 emerging, mid-career and established South Australian artists to more than 500 venues across the state to enrich and inspire South Australian communities.

Fantastical Worlds

Galleries 1-3 - 13 August - 24 December 2022 - Ticketed exhibition

From 13 August 2022, The David Roche Foundation plays host to Fantastical Worlds, a travelling exhibition developed by Powerhouse museum, Sydney, comprising playful arrangements of old and new.

The Powerhouse collection holds many objects that instil a sense of wonder. Made using a wide range of materials and techniques, they seduce us with their otherworldly beauty, stimulate our imagination and shed light on how we perceive ourselves and the world.

Fantastical Worlds is developed around works from four artists and designers: Timothy Horn, Alexander McQueen, Kate Rohde and Timorous Beasties. Inspired by elaborate European art styles from the past such as Baroque, Rococo and Empire, they imaginatively transform historical ideas, forms and patterns into striking 21st century creations. Playful arrangements of new and old complement these artworks, revealing creative brilliance behind contemporary and historical designs. For this iteration of the exhibition, Powerhouse ceramics, jewellery, silver, textiles and fashion are joined by decorative arts objects and paintings from The David Roche Foundation in a wondrous offering of dazzling form, ornament and colour.
