Sydney Contemporary 2013

As the only Adelaide representative, FELTspace is extremely proud to be exhibiting South Australian artists and Artist run initiatives at the Sydney Contemporary Art Fair in 2013.

FELTspace is an Artist Run Initiative established in 2008, celebrating its 5th anniversary this year. Volunteer run by seven co‐director artists, writers and curators. With its exhibition space in Compton Street at the heart of Adelaide’s Central Market district, FELTspace has quickly become a centre for the emerging contemporary visual arts community and an important site for the development, exhibition and discussion of new work by emerging and recognised visual artists in South Australia. FELTspace is unique as the only ARI with a permanent site in Adelaide’s CBD dedicated to the promotion of contemporary visual arts practices. FELTspace has a focus on promoting emerging and early career artists, with opportunities for more established artists to show in a non‐commercial and non‐institutional space. FELTspace provides a non‐institutional dynamic contemporary art space and is committed to providing South Australia with exhibition opportunities and audience experiences through our gallery spaces and throughout an expanding range of diverse opportunities and events aimed at engaging varied aspects of the Adelaide arts community and the public.

FELTspace at Sydney Contemporary Art Fair presents a dynamic group of emerging and early career artists from Adelaide. FELTspace aims to introduce a distinct yet unified collection of artworks at the Fair, encompassing the talents of Adelaide. Artists Kate Power, Matt Huppatz and Ray Harris work in a diverse range of mediums including photography, sculpture and video. They have been chosen not only because they represent the best of emerging contemporary art in Adelaide but because their art practices examine issues about identity: the feminine, the masculine and the self. Curating the space at Sydney Contemporary both conceptually and aesthetically will ensure that the FELTspace display is both appealing and challenging.
