Overview

This nostalgic look to the past celebrates the 50th anniversary of a breakthrough moment in Australian hard-edge painting.

Featuring the work of Adelaide’s father-and-son artists, David and John Dallwitz, Adelaide Cool takes its lead from David’s milestone solo exhibition at Sydney’s Central Street Gallery in 1969. At this time, both artists were simultaneously exploring dynamic colour and formal geometric relationships, often with a characteristic sense of whimsy and humour.

Featuring paintings, sculpture, moving images, photographs, textiles and jewellery, including works that have not been publicly seen since 1969, Adelaide Cool offers a rare glimpse into the local art scene that occurred in tandem with an international art movement.
