Celebrating South Australian Living Artists

This August we are celebrating SALA with four projects that honour the tremendous vitality of South Australian contemporary artists. Meet our SALA artists Kirsten Coelho, Margaret Dodd, Tom Moore and Troy-Anthony Baylis.⠀

Kirsten Coelho

2020 SALA feature artist and monograph recipient Kirsten Coelho draws on the history of domestic utilitarian objects to create exquisite vessel forms in porcelain.

Margaret Dodd

Margaret Dodd’s avant-garde ceramic Holden sculptures and her iconic film This Woman is Not a Car sit alongside related works by her contemporaries.

Tom Moore

Tom Moore draws on ancient glass-blowing techniques to create sculptures that burst with colour and narrative, morphing creatures and machines into wild forms.

Troy-Anthony Baylis

Inaugural Guildhouse fellow Troy-Anthony Baylis occupies the AGSA Vestibule with new text-based works that challenge and attempt to reconcile the colonial systems of place naming.
