Adelaide Festival Centre’s year-round program of free exhibitions features local, national and international artists, large-scale moving image works, and works from the Centre’s expansive collections including the Performing Arts Collection of South Australia.
Exhibitions during COVID
While the QBE Galleries in the Festival Theatre foyer remain closed for the time being, as we welcome patrons back to The Festival Centre and Her Majesty’s Theatre we have continued to present artworks throughout the buildings that can be viewed prior to the show and during intermission.
In addition, the outdoor media screens on King William Road continue to feature works from the Moving Image Program
24 hours a day 7 days a week.
During this time we are also working to present our programs in online formats where we can. Please continue checking here on our website for further announcements as well as the Adelaide Festival Centre Facebook page.
