Artist Angela Valamanesh’s new exhibition ‘Everybody’s Everything: Insect / Orchid’ will open at the Rare Books & Special Collections gallery in the University of Adelaide on August 23rd.

Drawn from her artist’s residency at the University, Valamanesh has focussed on mediated representations of the natural world in the Collection’s magnificent books featuring scientific illustrations, where orchids and their insect-like shapes collide to create a new world of imagery and narratives.

The exhibition will be launched by Professor Mike Brooks Interim Vice-Chancellor and President the University of Adelaide at 2pm on the 23rd, with an artist talk preceding the event at midday. This is a free event.

Proudly supported by the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund.
