Magic Object Vernissage Weekend Events Program

The '2016 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Magic Object' opens this Saturday at 10am. Join us over the opening weekend and find out more about the magic.

The Vernissage Weekend welcomes you to a ‘Wunderkammer’ of perspectives on material and magical thinking, as artists and thinkers examine the juxtapositions that make the world itself a magic object.

The program includes free artist talks, panels and performances featuring artists exhibiting in 'Magic Object' and at Tandanya, JamFactory, Australian Experimental Art Foundation and SASA Gallery, UniSA.
