2018 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Divided Worlds

3 March - 3 June 2016
Free admission

Titled Divided Worlds, the 2018 Adelaide Biennial presents an allegory of human society, one that meditates on the drama of the cosmos and evolution; on the past and the future; and on beauty and the environment.

Visit the Divided Worlds website for the full list of exhibiting artists.

The 2018 Adelaide Biennial is an Art Gallery of South Australia exhibition presented in partnership with the Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art, UniSA, in association with the Adelaide Festival of Arts, and with generous support received from the Art Gallery of South Australia Biennial Ambassadors Program and Principal Donor The Balnaves Foundation.

This project is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its principal arts funding body and by the Visual Arts and Crafts Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory Governments.
