Neil Roberts: The Plait, the Tatt and Baudelaire’s Rope
17 – 26 June 1993
Roberts’ process is eclectic – it is one that responds to and uses objects from where he finds himself, and one in which the object dictates the placement. To him, the sense of place and location are unimportant and inform the work.
Integral to the Art Museum exhibition will be three commissioned catalogue essays, by Nola Anderson from Manila, Anne Brennan from Canberra and Cath Kenneally from Adelaide, who will communicate with one another in a sort of ‘Chinese–whisper–game’ during his residency in Adelaide.
Neil Roberts is the South Australian School of Art Artist in Residence. The South Australian School of Art has received generous assistance from the Australia Council towards Neil Roberts’ residency and exhibition catalogue.
A University of South Australia Art Museum exhibition.
