Special Events in July
Each year throughout July, Illuminate Adelaide celebrates that idea by bringing together the best and boldest in art, music, technology and invention from around Australia and the world, and sets them loose across the city and the state.
From 28 June to 30 July, South Australia’s premier winter event turns Adelaide’s streetscapes and iconic locations into a beacon. An invitation. A city-wide spectacle daring you to shake off the winter blues and rekindle a sense of wonder.
Welcoming people from all walks of life to experience a program of free and ticketed events by local, national and international artists, Illuminate Adelaide is about staying up, heading out, and coming together. It’s about looking forward, breaking ground, and making memories. It’s about turning those long winter nights into an opportunity: to wake imaginations and let curiosity run wild.

Frida & Diego: Love and Revolution
Iconic works by two of the most influential and loved artists of the twentieth century – Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera – feature in this Australian exclusive exhibition, alongside works by key Mexican contemporaries.
Love, passion and politics lie at the heart of Frida & Diego. The couple, radical in their art and politics, were at the forefront of the artistic and cultural avant-garde in post-revolution Mexico from the 1920s to the 1950s. Today they are worshipped globally for their fusion of traditional Mexican folk art and international modernism.
Featuring more than 150 works, including paintings, works on paper, photographs and period clothing, this major exhibition from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection positions Kahlo and Rivera within the broader context of Mexican Modernism. It also includes works by Manuel and Lola Álvarez Bravo, Miguel Covarrubias, María Izquierdo, Carlos Mérida, David Alfaro Siqueiros and others.
Frida & Diego: Love & Revolution introduces Australian audiences to the intimate everyday stories of life and love as well as the grand narratives surrounding the political, social and cultural identity of Mexico and its peoples over the twentieth century.
