The entrancing, contempory projects of local SA artists are now displayed at the Neoteric art gallery that has taken over the Adelaide Railway Station.

Distinguishing itself as an independent, artist-run initiative, Neoteric is a major new visual arts event in the state’s cultural landscape.

The exhibition features photography, painting, sculpture, installation, video, sound, ceramics, and mixed media accompanied by a printed catalogue featuring the work of South Australian arts writers.

Ray Harris the Project Lead describes the exhibition as an artist-led and artist-focused initiative working outside establishments to celebrate the work and practice of South Australian contemporary artists.

Neoteric was created to feature and endorse my fellow SA artists; to give them another platform to make new work and be paid for that work; to celebrate and support their resilience, perseverance, hard work and talent,” Ray Harris said.

“In this exhibition the artist is the absolute priority, as artists we need to exhibit our work, to have it seen and experienced, this is a crucial part of our practice,” Ray Harris continued.

Through its commission of 20 artists and 20 writers, as well as an accompanying program of live performances and talks, this artist-led, artist-focused initiative provides local creatives with the rare opportunity to develop and exhibit their new work.

Coinciding with the Adelaide Biennial, Neoteric offers audiences the opportunity to engage with and support the work of local artists, and for artists to be seen by audiences which include visiting national curators and arts professionals.

This exhibition highlights the diversity, strength, depth and perseverance of South Australia’s contemporary artists and writers, and represents a rousing declaration of the importance of art in these uncertain times.

The initiative was conceived, developed, and led by artist Ray Harris in collaboration with Thom Buchanan Installation; Exhibition Manager Sarita Burnett; Curator Julianne Pierce; Writer Coordinator Fiona Borthwick and Graphic Designer Rosina Possingham.

It is supported by the Government of South Australia through Arts South Australia, and is an Umbrella event of Adelaide Festival.

Your chance to be immersed in Neoteric and the cultural experience they are offering ends on April 10th.
