Nuclear exhibition at Tandanya

Nuclear Exhibition

Saturday 17 September to Saturday 12 November 2016

Exposing the legacies of the atomic age through creative arts.

Involving more than 50 creative artists – photographers, filmmakers, digital artists, painters, sculptors and writers – this showcase presents the stories of atomic survivors, those Indigenous communities, service personnel and civilian workers who have been directly affected by atomic testing. It presents discoveries about the nuclear age, and fits within a long tradition of artists and communities responding to ‘the bomb’.

A centrepiece is ‘Ngurini’ (Searching), an immersive digital projection made with members of the Yalata Anangu community. Another is ’10 Minutes to Midnight’ also for immersive screening in our large cylindrical arena, and developed with nuclear veterans and the Balaklava community.

These digital art works are accompanied by exhibitions of photography and sculpture, feature seminars, film screenings, and storyteller sessions by Australian and international artists.

WHERE: Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute
Kaurna Country, 253 Grenfell Street, Adelaide

Open Monday to Saturday, 9.30am to 4.30pm
