Fuel your head and heart with art

The Flinders University Art Museum is now hosting Spinifex Country, curated by Heidi Pitman with Fiona Salmon, until December 8 across two sites; the Flinders University City Gallery in the State Library of South Australia, and the Australian Aboriginal Cultures Gallery (Special Exhibitions) in the South Australian Museum.

Comprising material culture, historic photographs and contemporary works of art – including works from University and  Museum collections – Spinifex Country explores the enduring significance of spinifex to Aboriginal people and their communities while also reflecting ways in which this uniquely Australian grass has taken hold in the imagination of others.

The City Gallery shop offers original art and craft, giftware and books sourced from Aboriginal communities and ethical, collaborative enterprises. This includes paintings, prints, sculpture, jewellery and basketry by emerging and established artists and unique, high-quality giftware. Fine art cards can also be found, along with a wide selection of children’s books, as well as FUAM exhibition catalogues.

All staff members are entitled to a 10 per cent discount on purchase on presentation of their staff card.

Gallery hours: Tuesday – Friday 11am – 4pm, Saturday and Sunday 12pm – 4pm, and admission is free.
