New Light

Presented by Illuminate Adelaide and ANAT, New Light 2022 showcases experimental and diverse moving image works by contemporary First Nations artists.

Following a national call out, New Light will feature commissioned work that explores compelling and complex concepts, with artworks being exhibited on the media screens at the entrance to the Adelaide Festivasl Centre as part of Illuminate Adelaide.

This year we are delighted to announce that we have four successful artists commissioned for New Light 2022!

Congratulations to: Amala Groom, Daen Sansbury-Smith, Elizabeth Close and Jaydenlee Tong.

The New Light program has considerable lineage. A series of moving image works were first commissioned by ANAT in association with the City of Adelaide for the 2017 TARNANTHI: Festival of Contemporary Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Art. Four contemporary First Nations artists created short experimental projection works, which screened as part of the East End Moving Image program in Adelaide.

The National Film and Sound Archive of Australia went on to support the work to screen at the Enlighten Festival, Canberra in 2018. In 2019, two of the New Light artists were selected to present their work at ISEA2019 in Gwangju, South Korea.
