​Samstag's Winter Season highlights the practices of three Samstag scholars. The scholarship has provided 148 artists a life/career changing opportunity to study overseas. All three exhibiting scholars benefited from the scholarship, journeying to Berlin, New York and Rotterdam.

Alex Martinis Roe brings To Become Two to Samstag, a film installation that stems from the artists' engagement with international feminist communities and their political practices. To Become Two traces the stories of six different, yet connected, feminist groups from the 1970s to today who have built communities in Europe and Australia.

Encompassing performance, installation and the possibilities of the digital realm, RE:SOUNDING is an exploration of one cultural object’s changing meanings over time and across cultures by two Vietnamese-Australian artists in collaboration, James Nguyen & Victoria Pham.

Samstag presents the world premiere of a newly commissioned work by Madison Bycroft. BIOPIC or Charles Geneviève Louis Auguste André Timothée has been commissioned by Samstag in partnership with the South Australian Film Corporation and SALA Festival. Bycroft’s ambitious project exemplifies our ongoing commitment to supporting the creation of significant screen-based works and the presentation of new work for South Australian audiences.
