Welcome to the Samstag Museum of Art
One of Australia's leading university art museums,
the Samstag Museum of Art aims to challenge and engage its audiences with a program of diverse and innovative exhibitions, publications and public activities.
Friday 18 October — Friday 6 December 2019
Opening Event / Friday 18 October, 5pm
The Samstag Museum of Art brings a concise selection of works by Fiona Tan to Adelaide. Centring upon the Australian premiere of Ascent, this is the first significant presentation of the artist’s work in our country in ten years.
Ascent is not only a reflection on Mount Fuji—a mountain of great significance to the Japanese—but also a study of its visual culture and a tribute to the history of both photography and film.
