Join us as we celebrate the opening of our 2020 Spring Season.

Amos Gebhardt presents Small acts of resistance, a new multi-channel video installation demonstrating the power of kinship and community for those outside of the mainstream. Across three screens, we witness survival play out within a variety of Australian contexts. Gebhardt uses portraiture, dance, song and play to tell stories of strength and evolution as a means by which to destabilise oppressive norms and celebrate more expansive and inclusive notions of being. 
Small acts of resistance will be accompanied by a digital catalogue featuring an essay by Isobel ParkerPhilip, Senior Curator of Australian Contemporary Art at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
Listen to Amos Gebhardt discuss their new work Small acts of resistance with exhibition curator Joanna Kitto, and be the first to see new solo exhibitions by Anne Wallace, Amos Gebhardt and Kirsten Coelho.
Musician Derek Pascoe will perform Penelope, a new work composed in response to Homer’s Odyssey to accompany Kirsten Coelho’s exhibition from 5 – 5.30pm

Limited numbers. RSVP essential.

Small acts of resistance was created through the South Australian Film Corporation and SALA Festival’s inaugural Artist in Residence commission, and is presented as part of the 2020 Adelaide Film Festival.
