Four Photographers :: Four Prints :: A4 Size :: Fourteen Days
Curated in only four hours, this photographic show explores the idea of format. Four outstanding Adelaide photographers display four prints in only A4 sizing, exploring life in a limited frame. Featuring Meg Cowell, elle d.s., Stephanie Fuller and Genevieve Brandenburg, this whiplash show will only be for fourteen days.
Coinciding with 'A4 by four by four' is 'TenbyEight', a themed photographic exhibition by emerging local artist Vera Ada. Vera's black and white portraiture is highly distinctive and unique. Using a range of multiple effects such as double exposure, long shutter speeds and over-processing she uses film photography to is most expressionistic extent. Highly evocative and haunting, this secondary show promises to complement and inspire 'A4 by four by four' in a subtle mix of beautiful compositions and echoing emotion.

:: Thursday 10th May - Wednesday 30th May :: Pop Vomit - A Retrospective by Bonnie McCrossan
Opening Night :: Thursday 10th May
:: 6pm - 8pm
"Hello my lovely ladies and gents! I would like to invite you all to an exhibition opening that will be an absolute shame to miss out on. My entire artistic history will be on show and most pieces are even available to buy! Come, dance, talk, be cultured and drink the wino on offer! Pop Culture is my main inspiration. Pop Culture is at times both the very best and the very worst, its lowbrow acconatations link it towards glossy magazines and tacky tabloid blogs. But at the heart of this incredible topic is the juxtaposition of beauty, trash and glamor. Normal people trying (and at times succeeding) to be more than what they truly are, reaching and pushing to whatever lengths they can to get to the top."
