New Light 2022
Free to view at the Adelaide Festival Centre, New Light 2022 will showcase experimental and diverse moving image works by First Nations artists.
Through a national call out, New Light will feature commissioned work that explores compelling and complex concepts, with commissioned artworks to be displayed on the media screens at the entrance to the Adelaide Festival Centre as part of City Lights.
The New Light program has considerable lineage. A series of moving image works were first commissioned by ANAT in association with the City of Adelaide for the 2017 TARNANTHI: Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art. Four contemporary First Nations artists created short experimental projection works, which screened as part of the East End Moving Image program in Adelaide.
The National Film and Sound Archive of Australia went on to support the work to screen at the Enlighten Festival, Canberra in 2018. In 2019, two of the New Light artists were selected to present their work at ISEA2019 in Gwangju, South Korea.
The vision for New Light 2022 is equally ambitious. It will be the perfect opportunity to experience the large-scale setting as intended. A free, family-friendly event not to be missed.
Artist announcement coming soon.
New Light 2022 is presented by Illuminate Adelaide and ANAT, as part of the Adelaide Festival Centre Moving Image program.
