Arts giants bested by one out of the box (6 May 2012) The Advertiser
A quiet and beautiful partnership between science and art has trumped the big guns, winning a major art award.
The Fringe show Art, Pattern and Complexity, at RiAus Future Space Gallery, has been awarded the Bank SA best visual arts and design award.
It beat the city’s arts giants – The Art Gallery of SA’s Allegoria Sacra and JamFactory’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor exhibition.
This show, curated by Margot Osborne, tackles the relationship between mathematics and images, the designs of nature and nature’s response to designs.
“It’s been a very appealing exhibition and kids and teens have really loved it,” reports the curator, further pleased to find that her exhibition essay has just been published internationally alongside works by acclaimed philosophers Alain de Botton and Roger Scruton.
It is all about artists pioneering new technologies.
The show at RiAus is open until May 16.
