Auslan users are invited to attend an Auslan interpreted tour of ACE Open’s Adelaide Festival exhibition, The Violet Ballet by acclaimed artist Sally Smart.

Widely known for her large-scale, richly-coloured assemblage installations, Smart has carved out a world-renowned career that spans more than three decades.

The Violet Ballet extends on Smart’s distinctive practice, examining the extraordinary legacy of the Ballet Russes – in particular its macabre dance piece Chout (Tale of the Buffoon) – alongside traditional the Indonesian Wayang character Punokawan.

ACE Open is a flagship contemporary art gallery located in the Lion Arts Centre at the West End of North Terrace. It is easily reached by public transport, including the tram.

After your visit to ACE Open, make a day of it by catching the tram to the Art Gallery of South Australia for an Auslan interpreted tour of their Adelaide Festival exhibition, Quilty. Tour begins at 2pm, more details here.
