Everyone likes to be entertained, but isn’t it also good to get that brain working from time to time as well? If only there was a way to do both at the same time. Well, if you happen to own a piece of real estate in Adelaide, then you are in luck.
The city’s Art Pod on 25 Pirie Street has a number of thought-provoking art exhibits this month. Showing off both the city’s established and emerging artists over a 12-month period, a number of exhibitions this month will serve as a fun day out while also challenging the way you think about both art and the world.
Monika Morgenstern’s “Powerplay” exhibit will be showing until 25 June this year, which means if you haven’t been able to catch it yet, there’s still time. Not only is it totally free, but it also happens to be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week – so there’s no excuse.
As the city council’s website puts it, the exhibit “explores conformity, loyalty, obedience and subservience in both the private and public domain” by looking at the way power plays out on the human body.
It’s a natural fit for Ms Morgenstern, who’s never one to follow convention. She has dabbled in a variety of different mediums, from photography to watercolours, in her 20-odd year career.
Other shows that those with property in Adelaide may want to head down to are the Rundle Street Projector, which displays a variety of different artists. Until 9 July, Jaynie Langford’s seven minute-long animation, “That’s What I Swipe About You”, will be projected on the Target wall above Grundy’s Shoe Store.
If you haven’t secured a property in the area yet, more exhibits are due in the coming months.
