Curated by Kade MacDonald + Dallas Gold
Held at Praxis Artspace, the exhibition NG Salon shows the experimental nature of the artists in the region. Curated by Kade MacDonald (Hanging Valley) and Dallas Gold (RAFT Artspace) the exhibition coincided with the South Australian Museum’s exhibition, Ngurra.
NG Salon is presented as part of the 2017 TARNANTHI Festival, presented in partnership with the Art Gallery of South Australia.
“We have been observing the development of a very expressive visual language. Some of the works are bold, colourful and breathtaking in their confidence — other works by the older artists, such as Neville McArthur, are stripped back to the bones … [they are] marks of authority void of any embellishment.”
Dallas Gold, Exhibition Curator
