Adelaide//International announced

30 October 2018

Announced today, the Adelaide//International is a new series of exhibitions for the 2019, 2020 and 2021 Adelaide Festivals, each comprising works by artists from Australia and overseas, along with associated forum programs.

In 2019, two Australian artists — Brook Andrew and Eugenia Lim — and two international — Lisa Reihana (New Zealand) and Ming Wong (Singapore) — will be featured in an exhibition exploring histories of migration, the impact of cultural exchange on communities and individuals, and questions of who holds the power of narration.

"The best artwork at the Venice Biennale? That will be Lisa Reihana’s in Pursuit of Venus... Where most panoramas present a fixed viewpoint, this one moves and unfolds in a riveting animated sequence that took 10 years to complete and that deserves to be recognised as one of the key artworks of recent years."  – The Sunday Times, UK
