Experimental Art Foundation (1974–2016)

The Experimental Art Foundation (EAF) was established in 1974 by a small group of Adelaide artists and theorists in order to both encourage new approaches to the visual arts and to promote the idea of art as 'radical and only incidentally aesthetic'.

  1. Our apprehension of the world is active, not passive, and art displays an emergent apprehension.
  2. Art is only incidentally and not essentially aesthetic. Art is concerned with every kind of value and not particularly with beauty.
  3. Art interrogates the status quo; it is essentially, and not incidentally, radical.
  4. Art is experimental action: it models possible forms of life and makes them available to public criticism.
