Adelaide is in for a treat for its 60th birthday Adelaide Festival 2020 celebrations. A Doll's House is visionary Japanese artist Tatzu Nishi's jaw-dropping work of art. Created only once before outside the Palais de Tokyo Art Museum in Paris, this amazing piece has been commissioned for your entertainment in association with Australia's public art elder statesman John Kaldor and entry is FREE.

Located at Rundle Mall, Gawler Place Canopy, which is located in the north-eastern corner of the Adelaide CBD, in close proximity to the cultural and university precinct on North Terrace; the Rundle Street/East End retail and restaurant strip; and the Hindley Street entertainment strip, this exhibition will run for the duration of the Festival from Fri 28 Feb to Sun 15 Mar 2020; 9am-7pm Mon-Thu, 9am-9pm Fri, 9am-5pm Sat & 11am-5pm Sunday & Public Holidays.


Tatzu Nishi's goal as an artist is to reach those who are normally not particularly interested in art, so he works at attracting those with a huge outdoor exhibition. Another case in point; after moving from Japan to Germany in 1987, Nishi was struck by the many public monuments and statues that populate the streets of Europe; so familiar that they go unnoticed by residents. He began to use them as the basis for spatial and social interventions, enclosing them in incongruous settings so viewers could experience them anew.

This very special gift for the city needs to be experienced by everyone, so bring your family, your children, your inner child and your friends with you, and experience this magical doll's house that every little girl is going to want to live in. Have fun playing with this most amazing of toys but don't sit on the furniture or try to use the bathroom.
