The Art Gallery of South Australia presents the first major survey exhibition of one of Australia’s most acclaimed contemporary artists, Ben Quilty.

Developed by the Gallery and curated by its co-Acting Director Lisa Slade, the exhibition extends from Quilty’s early reflections on the initiation rituals performed by young Australian men to his experience as an official war artist in Afghanistan and beyond.

The exhibition will be unveiled in Adelaide on 2 March as part of the 2019 Adelaide Festival before a year of touring.
