A unique multi-media art exhibition, which brings together art and science, has opened at the Adelaide Convention Centre.
Curated by Carollyn Kavanagh, Body of Evidence is an exhibition featuring the striking work of South Australian artists who use the human body as a subject of physiological and anatomical study.
Featured artists include John Blines, Gina Czarnecki & The Australian Dance Theatre, Meg Cowell, Ian Gibbins, Naomi Hunter, Cheryl Hutchens, Hans Kreiner, Kerryn Levy, Deborah Prior, Damien Shen, Angela Valamanesh and Thomas Yeend.
In a South Australian first, the exhibition has been commissioned by the conveners of a major conference at the Centre – the 25th Annual Meeting of the Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer.
It was the idea of past Association president Professor Dorothy Keefe who saw an opportunity to celebrate the conference and the work of experimental South Australian artists.
The Body of Evidence exhibition also forms part of the Adelaide Convention Centre’s Centre Artbeat program, which was established to showcase the work of local artists. Exhibited works will span both the Centre’s Central and West Building.
During the conference (June 23-25), commissioned works by South Australian artists Meg Cowell and Ian Gibbins will be video projected onto the windows of the Centre’s West Building from 5pm until 5am.
Titled Situs Inversus, the large format images explore the evolving left-right symmetry in the body.
Body of Evidence runs at the Centre until July 3 and entry is free. For more information visit http://www.adelaidecc.com.au/what-s-on/centre-artbeat
