Sauerbier House Culture Exchange
Sauerbier House Culture Exchange is a contemporary art space that plays host to a range of programs both supporting and promoting contemporary arts practice and creative cultural expression. Situated on the bank of the Onkaparinga River or Ngangkiparingga (‘Women’s River’; Kaurna), the colonial villa is a state heritage community asset purposely transformed from a domestic residence (originally George Sauerbier c.1897) into a studio and exhibition spaces.
Sauerbier House offers established and emerging contemporary artists and writers (non-residential) artist in residences (AiR) and exhibition opportunities. The extended residencies allow for creatives to authentically respond to the complex and culturally significant coastal location. Interaction between resident artists and visitors is facilitated through open studio sessions, artist talks and/or workshops and exhibitions.
Quarterly [GRAFTd] exhibitions interrupt the rhythm of the AiR program by affording the opportunity for contemporary visual artists or arts collectives to exhibit new or previously unseen bodies of work.
