2014 Adelaide Biennial Sets Record Attendance

More than 111,000 people have visited the 2014 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: Dark Heart since the exhibition opened on 1 March 2014, up 10% on the 2012 Biennial.

We are thrilled to announce that ten works of art from the 2014 Adelaide Biennial have been acquired into the Art Gallery’s collection. Thanks to the continued generosity of the Contemporary Collectors, Alex Seton’s moving sculpture Someone died trying to have a life like mine has been acquired into the Gallery’s collection. Seton’s solemn marble reenactment of an incident whereby the lifejackets of 28 asylum seekers were discovered washed-up on Cocos Island has been one of the most talked about works of art in this year’s Adelaide Biennial.
