Current Exhibition


by Kaspar Schmidt Mumm (SA)

Curated by Joanna Kitto as part of Adelaide City Council’s Emerging Curator Program.

14 April – 5 June 2016

Delight in the dazzling mind of Adelaide-based emerging artist Kaspar Schmidt Mumm (SA) in THE FLAMING 'O' - an installation based on a poem of the same name. Schmidt Mumm is known for his use of wild colour and rhythmic poetry and here, he brings the two together, inviting the viewer to enter his absurdist world.

CLOSING PERFORMANCE: 6.30 – 7.30pm Thursday 26 May, Art Pod
Join us in the Art Pod for a performative interpretation of THE FLAMING ‘O’, a poem by Kaspar Schmidt Mumm. Spectacularly surreal, this performative interpretation of THE FLAMING 'O' encompasses movement, music and theatrics to bring the artist's prose to life.
