Don’t miss the country’s longest-standing survey of contemporary Australian art. Curated by Sebastian Goldspink, Free State features the work of 25 artists throughout the Art Gallery of South Australia.

Free/State assembles a group of artists who are fearless; the provocateurs, vanguards and outsiders – challenging histories and art forms, and in the process, offering reflections on an era of multi-faceted global upheaval.


2022 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art
4 March – 5 June
Open daily 10am-5pm
North Terrace, Adelaide

Free entry. More info here.

The exhibition explores ideas of transcending states, from the spiritual and artistic to the psychological, and embraces notions of freedom in expression, creation and collaboration.

Delivering new and unexpected visions of transformative personal and public moments, in mediums spanning photography, painting, sculpture, installation and the moving image, Free/State presents a multi-generational collective of artists hailing from every Australian state and territory.

“Each of these artists is emblematic of the many divergent facets of contemporary Australian art,” curator Sebastian Goldspink explains.

“Diversity is embraced and celebrated in Free/State and the exhibition is reflective of a nation still in the throes of grappling with its past and defining its future.”
