I am the old and the new – Final Week

Do not let this exhibition pass you by.


John Mawurndjul: I am the old and the new
Art Gallery of South Australia
Galleries 23, 24 & 25
October 26th 2018 – January 28th 2019
Free entry

One of, if not the, most significant surveys of a solo Aboriginal artist’s career in an Australian art gallery, the John Mawurndjul show at the Art Gallery of South Australia redefines contemporary art in the 21st century.

Beyond notions of lineal time and exempt from the Judeo-Christian belief in the ‘fall of man’, Mawurndjul’s work exists in a parallel space that the Western mind struggles to occupy.

Intricate and ornate as well as decorative and colourful, the figures and places Mawurndjul takes you to through his art will become a part of you, long after you leave.
