ADELAIDE.- 2014 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art Curator, Nick Mitzevich has announced the names of over 25 of Australia’s leading contemporary artists for next years’ Adelaide Biennial, Dark Heart.

Patricia Piccinini’s Skywhale also will make an appearance in Adelaide over the opening weekend and the work of Adelaide based sculptor and installation artist Julia Robinson will reshape The Studio activity space.

The issues and ideas explored by the Dark Heart artists include intercultural relationships, our ecological fate, gender, history and political power. Mitzevich elaborates “My focus has been on assembling an exhibition that connects with the viewer and provides a moving experience. I am after an inherently emotional and immersive exhibition, one that explores the underbelly of contemporary culture.”

The theme of difficult conversations runs throughout the biennial. This will be presented in the exhibition publication which will feature an essay by Australia’s most controversial expatriate, Germaine Greer.
