This education resource developed by ACE Open in collaboration with the Art Gallery of South Australia introduces you to the world of contemporary art. Learn more about where artists get their inspiration from, the engines of contemporary art making processes and how this can be translated into a classroom context – shifting the balance from outcome to an idea-driven focus.
