Check out Our Mob with our eyes and our imagination
Our Mob 2014 is a program of exhibitions and events that highlight the diversity of artmaking by South Australian Aboriginal artists of all ages. The exhibitions are on display in the Festival Theatre Foyer and in the Artspace Gallery above the Dunstan Playhouse with a colourful and exciting range of artworks.
Our Mob artists are from diverse environments and range in age and experience from highly respected Aboriginal elders, to emerging artists, to the very young.
The Our Mob Contemporary (Behind the Glass) exhibition was compiled by emerging curator Coby Edgar and showcases installation pieces by six contemporary artists commenting on the representation of Aboriginal people in history. She's Got Roots is a passionate display of artwork by reknown artist Amanda Radomi, while the Our Young Mob exhibition showcases a number of dramatic pieces from young up and coming indigenous artists all under the age of 18.
Our Mob 2014 tells the stories of South Australian Indigenous cultures while celebrating the spirit and creative imagination of Aboriginal South Australian artists. The exhibitions demonstrate their determination and eagerness to retain cultural integrity and to educate others.
Artworks are gathered from across the length and breadth of South Australia, including several regional areas, remote and isolated community centres and metropolitan Adelaide. The Our Mob competition was open to all South Australian Indigenous artists, and a panel has selected the finalists for this exhibition from the very large number of entrants.
This resultant exhibition is a collaborative project presented by the Adelaide Festival Centre working in conjunction with Country Arts SA and Ananguku Arts and Culture Aboriginal Corporation. Our Mob features over 140 pieces of artwork for sale produced by 118 artists who range in age from just seven to over 80.
Entry to the exhibition is free, and it is open on weekdays from 9am to 5pm in the Festival Theatre, and from Wednesday to Sunday in the Artspace Gallery from 11am to 4pm until the 7th of December. Further details are available on the website.
