Once a month, Adam and I get together and visit the cultural precinct in Adelaide to see all of the new exhibits. I say once a month, but I haven’t written one of these posts for over a year so we’ve clearly got some catching up to do ;P
South Australian Museum
I have to admit, I completely forgot this was here until we walked into the lobby. The model of RSV Nuyina is 3.2 meters long and is made up of nearly 120,000 Lego bricks. There are so many cool details to find in there. I’m not going to spoil them for you, but look out for the shark and the Star Wars cantina 😉
Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize
The Waterhouse exhibition is what we came in for, and it was as great as always. So many very beautiful, interesting, and/or poignant pieces. Sometimes all three 😉
State Library of South Australia
Lust for Life
Another surprise exhibition, Lust for Life was all about modern home design in Adelaide from 1950 to 1965. Lots of great photos of beautiful retro architecture and blueprints for days.
145 Years of the SANFL
Neither of us are big football fans but this exhibition was still interesting. My favourite parts were the image of all of the SANFL badges and, of course, the kids’ table where Adam and I designed our own team uniform.
Art Gallery of South Australia
First up, “THE SPIRITS OF THE PUMPKINS DESCENDED INTO THE HEAVENS” is objectively the best name for anything ever. Adam’s been wanting to come and check this out since it opened. I honestly had little idea what it was but it was pretty mindblowing.
We then did a quick browse through to see what was new since we last visited. The lower gallery had a lot of very cool abstract sculptures.
Of course, we ended our day by visiting our favourite lady at AGSA, Ruth.
