On a recent visit to the Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art, at UniSA, CityMag was engulfed by a forrest of timber beams jutting up out of the polished wooden floorboards of what is, quietly, our favourite museum in Adelaide.

5:30 pm, RSVP essential

The work, ‘Slow crawl into infinity’ is by Roy Ananda, a local artist who the Samstag’s curators believe to be at the forefront of Adelaide’s thriving contemporary arts scene. Although we’re not completely au fait with Ananda’s processed-based sculpture, we see in this particular and, indeed, site-specific commission a wonderful blurring of boundaries between ‘highbrow’ and ‘lowbrow’ art.
