The Samstag Museum of Art is delighted to present two special exhibitions for the 2017 Adelaide Festival of ArtsThe Ocean After Nature and Countercurrents feature the work of twenty-three Australian and international artists and collaborations, exploring our relationship with and connections to the oceans through new media, sculpture, installation, painting and photography.

Presented in partnership with Independent Curators International, New York, The Ocean After Nature reflects on the complicated planetary effects that humanity and the oceans have on each other today. In response to that project, the Samstag Museum of Art has invited a number of artists – each with a connection to Australia, New Zealand and/or the Pacific Islands – to probe the unique implications of this complex relationship for our region in the compelling Countercurrents exhibition.

Countercurrents features the work of Daniel Boyd, Baden Pailthorpe, Alex Seton, Fiona Tan, Angela Tiatia, James Tylor, and Ken & Julia Yonetani.
