Join us at the Guildhouse Sturt Street office to celebrate Marijana’s career and the significant contribution she has made to the South Australian urban landscape over the past three decades. You will have the opportunity to hear Marijana offer us personal insights into her conceptual development, inspiration, artistic process and challenges in creating works that are in conversation with place and a public audience, followed by a Q+A with contributing author Marie Falcinella and facilitated by Sian Watson, Producer, Guildhouse Professional Services.

Artist Marijana Tadić is recognised for her ability to distil complex ideas into elegant sculptural forms. An astute observer of the natural world, she uses patterns found in nature – stratification, interlacing, duplication, and the flow of energy – to construct works that create dialogue and bring attention to issues of significance.

In Art Made Public Tadic provides us with an intimate glimpse into 10 major pubic artworks, offering us personal insights into her conceptual development, inspiration, challenges and artistic process for creating works that are in conversation with place and a public audience.
