2002 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art


The 2002 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art was a major survey exhibition co-ordinated by the Art Gallery of SA and staged during the Adelaide Festival of Arts.

In 2002 the theme of the Biennial was Converge: Where Art and Science Meet and included the work of Australian artists working at the interface between art and science.

Several artists who have been supported by ANAT programs were exhibited in the Biennial including artists supported through the ANAT Scientific Serendipity art and residency program (Adam Donovan, Justine Cooper, Oron Catts and lonat Zurr); Lynne Sanderson (Conference & Workshop Fund) and Jason Davidson Hampton (Indigenous new media residency).

An additional component of the exhibition was the development of the online Converge Archive. ANAT's Information Officer Charity Bramwell assisted in the development of the archive in association with the Converge working group: Linda Cooper (project coordinator), Jenny Fraser, Victoria Lynn, Amanda McDonald Crowley (chair), Karl Telfer, Sarah Thomas, Lynette Wallworth and Angharad Wynne-Jones).
