A new program for 13–17 year olds, NEO is proudly supported by the Balnaves Foundation.

To coincide with the Gallery’s growing First Fridays program, young audiences will invigorate the Gallery with their own designated social space that will be enlivened with music, film screenings and conversations with and about artists. Through peer-led learning, young artists and thinkers will lead and inspire each other.

Be there from the very start – attend the launch of NEO, programmed to coincide with the 2016 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art. Take part in interactive performances where hairdressing becomes an art of entertainment and enjoy a circus skills demonstration.
