An exhibition of artists' books and works referencing the book form, which addresses a broad theme of the changing world in which we live.
The past few decades have seen dramatic changes in the borders of countries, populations have been driven from their homelands or have chosen to relocate, and changing climate patterns have had a profound impact on agriculture, economies and the natural environment.
Eleven artists: Tilda Dalunde (Sweden), Loene Furler (SA), Liz Jeneid (NSW), David Kerr (SA), Gabrielle Lane (SA), Meg lloyd (SA), Ken Orchard (SA), Winnie Pelz (SA), Melinda Rankin (SA), Olga Sankey (SA), Lyn Wood (SA) interpret this theme through highly personal and diverse statements.
ATLAS is curated by Winnie Pelz.
Work by artist Angela Valamanesh, drawn from her artist's residency at the University of Adelaide's Rare Books & Special Collections. She has focussed on mediated representations of the natural world in the Collection's magnificent books featuring scientific illustrations by Rosa Fiveash (1854-1938), where orchids and their insect-like shapes collide to create a new world of imagery and narratives.
To be opened by Mirna Heruc, Director, University Collections, University of Adelaide, on Sunday 10 December at 2.30pm.
The artist will be presenting an artist talk at the opening celebration.
