EXHIBITION PLANNING

Deborah PAAUWE, Hide and Seek (detail), 2004

The Samstag Museum of Art’s exhibitions program is devised by the Museum Director with the curatorial staff and is planned up to three years in advance. 

Exhibitions and projects are developed by the Museum’s curatorial staff, most often from direct invitations to artists and curators or are touring exhibitions negotiated with partner arts organisations. 

Touring exhibitions presented at the Samstag Museum have included exhibitions from National Gallery of Australia, National Portrait Gallery, White Rabbit Gallery, Australian War Memorial and the University Art Museums Australia (UAMA) collegiate. 

The Samstag Museum has also partnerships with the Adelaide Festival, OzAsia Festival, SALA Festival, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Visual Arts Festival, and Adelaide Film Festival. Exhibitions are developed collaboratively with these peak events in the South Australian arts calendar. 

The Samstag Museum appreciates our relationship with artists and curators. If you choose to make an exhibition proposal, it will be reviewed by the Museum’s curatorial staff and a reply will be sent to you. However, due to the number of proposals we receive, the Samstag Museum of Art cannot guarantee individual feedback. 

For all exhibition enquiries please contact Erica Green, the Samstag Museum of Art Director.
