Yara Ngutu Wardli
The AEAF Studios
The AEAF studio facilities support South Australian mid-career to established artists, a flexible work/presentation space and a residential studio that supports visiting national and international artists, curators and academics. Occupation of the day-studios is by invitation only, however AEAF does accept applications for the residency program.
The AEAF studios facilitate a dynamic, supportive and secure studio environment in order to foster the development of ideas and practices, increase networking and exposure opportunities, and to increase dialogue surrounding the experimental contemporary visual arts in Adelaide and beyond.
In 2014 AEAF was given naming rights for the organisation’s studio facilities by the Kaurna peoples, the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the Adelaide Plains region.
The Kaurna name yara ngutu wardli underpins the AEAF mission to develop, foster and promote the experimental visual arts in South Australia – yara (meaning respective, reciprocal and different), ngutu (meaning knowledge) and wardli (meaning home).
