27 August - 25 September

Dan Withey

Stay Positive

  • SALA

OPENING EVENT | Thursday 27th August, 6-8pm
GUEST SPEAKER | Christopher Orchard

Stay Positive in an ever increasing world of darkness and negativity. Dan’s mantra is to stay positive, never give up, do the best you can… and TRY NOT TO BE A DICK (emphasis on try!)

This show is a step into the strange mind of Dan Withey, a 34 year-old straight-white-guy. Who would think he’s interesting? Bear with us, it will be fun. Together, we will delve into the twisting labyrinth of the artist’s brain, through a maze of bold colours and eccentric characters.

We take a look at work from Dan’s past and the present in this retrospective of thought. Traversing a range of contemporary issues, Withey parodies our current situation in an increasingly confusing world.

‘Stay Positive’ is part of the 2020 SALA Festival and has been supported by the South Australian Government through Arts South Australia.
