2 October - 29 November
Co-curated by Margaret Hancock Davis and Coby Edgar
Shimmer offers artists from across Australia the unique opportunity to undertake research in one of the South Australian Museum collections and to produce a body of work around the concept of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adornment. Shimmer will highlight the continuity of practice in several forms of Indigenous adornment in Australia and present dynamic new ways that contemporary artists are engaging with the physical and conceptual aspects of adornment and performance within their practice.
Shimmer is a collaborative project between JamFactory and the South Australian Museum presented as part of TARNANTHI, the Art Gallery of South Australia’s inaugural Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art. The Festival will be held from the 8th - 18th of October 2015 and will encompass a series of exhibitions, public programs and community events across Adelaide with an art fair on the opening-weekend at Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute.
