'Already Home' - SALA Exhibition Project

At Play Cultural Heart People of Adelaide

Every August, the work of literally thousands of visual artists finds its way onto the walls, floors, ceilings and more of venues both conventional and quirky as the South Australian Living Artists Festival (SALA) rolls into town for a month-long celebration of hometown creativity.

For the second year running a local emerging curator has been awarded the opportunity to add a whole new dimension to the many spaces inside Adelaide’s City Library through the SALA Exhibition Project.

The honour this year has gone to visual artist and curator Fruzsi Kenez, whose ‘Already Home’ exhibition promises to be a compelling reminder of the beauty in unity and the power of diversity.

Fruzsi Kenez will curate the 2019 SALA Exhibition Project at the City Library.

“Much like the City Library itself, I wanted this exhibition to convey a sense of harmony, wonder and exploration and be welcoming to all ages, genders and nationalities. Along with celebrating the diverse cultural and artistic practices that flourish in Adelaide, I hope this exhibition helps people contemplate the journey that has brought them to this city and help them find their place here."
