First Fridays at the Art Gallery
The Art Gallery of South Australia are firing up Friday night by staying open after hours on the first Friday of every month. Hear great talks, unwind to live music and take in the latest exhibitions and displays.
Think of the Gallery as a launch pad for your weekend; have a bite to eat and something to drink at Art Gallery Food + Wine, browse in the Gallery Shop and immerse yourself in art and culture with an amazing mix of eclectic characters – then lose yourself in the city as you head off to other gigs, shows and events.
The event is free entry.
Co-curated by artist Roy Ananda
Central to Adelaide-based artist Roy Ananda’s work in Divided Worlds, is his fascination with fandom and fantasy. Participate in a game of Dungeons & Dragons and be transported to another world by performances, live music, tours and talks. Join the launch of a new publication on Australian artist, and SA favourite, Michael Zavros.
