The priorities for SASA Gallery's exhibitions program are:

(i) to present the work of UniSA Creative higher degree research candidates;

What's On


May: revisions,
interventions, extensions 
Friday 30 April - Friday 28 May

Historically, the month of May has come to be connected with student protest, workers’ rights, and revolution. As a verb, may is used to express possibilities or seek permission. And, according to the European schema, May is springtime in the north and autumn in the south, seasons associated with transition.

During May in 2021, the SASA Gallery will become a creative laboratory in which a group of Bachelor of Contemporary Art students and staff will be invited to develop ways of working together and engaging in an exhibition of works-in-progress, as they evolve. The project will underscore duration, action and reflection in the creative process. What do revisions and interventions yield? What is the influence of parallel processes and objects on one another? 

Part studio, part exhibition, and part experiment in collaborative practice participants in May: revisions, interventions, extensions will decide for themselves the details, scope and mode of the project, but will be encouraged to continually revise their work through decision-making processes and the interventions and extensions of others.

Christopher Houghton: Grounded

Friday 4 June - Friday 2 July

Christopher Houghton's large-scale analogue photographs document the Adnyamathanha and Ngarrindjeri lands of South Australia. Approaching image making as a form of embodiment, Houghton’s abstracted photographs of earth, rocks, trees and sky explore place and consider concepts of nature, culture and deep time.
