AUSTRALIAN EXPERIMENTAL ART FOUNDATION5-7pm | Lion Arts CourtyardEXHIBITION OPENINGS
Dug and Digging With – curated by Katie Barber and Stan Mahoney Dug and Digging With is an exhibition about the mysteries and paradoxes of being. In an AEAF studio residency, Barber and Mahoney invited seven Adelaide-based experimental artists to participate in a series of discussions about what they deem to be the most fundamental motivations of their practices. The result is an innovative collaborative process that emphasises dialogue, mutability and the element of chance. Artists: Matthew Bradley (SA), Matea Gluscevic (SA), Ray Harris (SA), Matt Huppatz (SA), Julia McInerney (SA), Riley O’Keeffe (SA), Tom Squires (SA)
AEAF 24:7 WINDOW-SPACE EXHIBITION: 1000 Forms of Fear - curated by Carollyn Kavanagh 1000 Forms of Fear examines feelings of unease, menace and dread—an escalating sense of horror, echoing the perception of fear that pervades our daily life. The first artist in a series of three installations, Jess Taylor explores violent representations through the language of model-making, reflecting a tendency to project ourselves and our anxieties onto the make believe.

Europe After the Rain This exhibition, from visual artist and pioneer of electronic music John Foxx, focuses on the complex interplay between identity, memory, architecture, and time and place.

MERCURY CINEMA7pm | 13 Morphett StFILM: Saturday Night Fever (1977) Amidst the false glamour of the Seventies disco scene lurk self-obsessed denizens of the night, caught up in drugs and racial conflicts, unable to live up to their own dreams. A smash hit on release and perennial favourite, Saturday Night Fever strikes the perfect balance between the joy of letting rip on the dancefloor and the banality of life outside the clubs.
This screening coincides with the UMBRELLA MUSIC FESTIVAL, and there will be a DJ performing from 6pm!
