About the exhibition
Stop(the)Gap: International Indigenous art in motion, 24 February – 21 April 2011, Gallery 1 – 3
Some of the most provocative and illuminating moving image work today is being created by Indigenous new media artists – yet there has been no major international focus on this work until now.
Stop(the)Gap is a major international Indigenous moving image project, developed for the 2011 BigPond Adelaide Film Festival in partnership with the Samstag Museum of Art. Curator Brenda L Croft brings together recent works by renowned Indigenous artists from Australia, Aotearoa/New Zealand, Canada and the USA, to challenge global preconceptions of contemporary international Indigenous expression.
Stop(the)Gap explores the fertile ground between cinema and the visual arts. The exhibition is accompanied by a complementary program of: moving image exhibitions, film screenings, outdoor projections and forums, presented across various Adelaide venues.
