ART AFTER DARK summer launch

Palladium on Light, proud principal partner of ART AFTER DARK West End

Art After Dark West End

Adelaide’s western precinct will come alive on 15 October in the first major event of the summer calendar of ART AFTER DARK West End, proudly supported by principal partner Palladium on Light.

The October event will see hundreds gather at West End cultural venues as the University of South Australia’s Samstag museum launches the Adelaide Film Festival.

JamFactory will feature works by Indigenous artists around the concepts of Indigenous adornment and three-dimensional design as part of the TARNANTHI Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art.

We are pleased to announce Palladium on Light is the new principal partner of ART AFTER DARK West End, in a partnership which recognises and builds upon the growth in this thriving cultural precinct.

ART AFTER DARK West End showcases creative talent through a range of arts events. On Thursdays the doors of participating venues located in Adelaide’s West End will remain open from 5pm and host exhibitions, films, music, talks, food, beer and wine, workshops and more. The weekly openings will be complemented by a series of major events.

Hindmarsh, who are developing and constructing Palladium on Light, said “ART AFTER DARK West End embodies this transformation in Adelaide’s western district, and we are excited to support this fantastic series of events and be involved with the precinct’s evolution.”

The new Palladium on Light apartment building, comprising of 63 apartments set in an 18 storey building, is located on Adelaide’s Light Square in the heart of Adelaide’s West End. The high-end, luxury apartments offer an exciting opportunity to acquire a home in the heart of this transformed, cultural precinct which is soon to be further enhanced by UniSA's proposed public buildings. Enquiry details can be found on the Palladium on Light website.

To launch this new partnership, the Samstag Museum of Art is celebrating the official opening of Hossein Valamanesh’s ambitious new media work Char Soo, at 5 pm on 15 October, 2015 as part of the ART AFTER DARK West End program. Char Soo is the fourth major Art and the Moving Image commission undertaken by the Samstag Museum and the Adelaide Film Festival. Be the first to experience the exhibition in the West End before its national tour.
