Sense-absorbing installations, optical encounters and moments of mesmeric intensity bring art to life at AGSA this winter. Phenomena: Art as experience firmly anchors the viewer as the maker of meaning. It traces the experiential turn in international art practice, as audiences experience moments of immersion and encounter. As early as the 1930s, philosopher John Dewey spoke of the true work of art existing in the experience of making or encountering art. Uncover large−scale installations and sensory works of art, never seen before in Adelaide, presented as a series of interconnecting experiences. Artists include Olafur Eliasson, Aki Inomata, Jitish Kallat, Yukultji Napangati and Ernesto Neto.
Tracing the trajectory from minimalism to installation practice, with a radical embrace of desert minimalism, Phenomena: Art as experience presents major contemporary international works to South Australian audiences.
