Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art ‘Monster Theatres’

The 2020 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art: ‘Monster Theatres’ launches Friday 28th of February. Julia Robinson will present new work, installed at the Museum of Economic Botany in the Adelaide Botanic Garden.

“…’Beatrice’, expands on ideas of the natural and the unnatural through signifiers of splicing, mutating, doubling and decaying and responds to the short story: ‘Rappaccini’s Daughter’ (1844) by Nathanial Hawthorne, that for me embodies many of these concerns and examines ideas of the monstrous.” – Julia Robinson

Presented by the Art Gallery of South Australia, ‘Monster Theatres’ will run 29 February – 8 June 2020.
