WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE

It is clear from the pictures below that the opening of the Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art at the Art Gallery of South Australia was quite a good one. The paparazzi were assisted by Ben Pederick and one Alexandra Sanderson who actually managed to find her way into a number of the snaps. Must be trick photography. But back to the opening – there hasn’t been this much fun at a biennial opening for many years. Seems there is a new mood at AGSA. Natasha Bullock and Alexie Glass-Kantor are the curators of Parallell Collisions and the social secretary has retired to write a few words that we know you will be eagerly awaiting. In the mean time here are some extremely arty social pics capturing the mood of gaiety that descends upon Adelaide once every two years.
