Ocula City Guide Adelaide Adelaide's long history of artistic endeavour is evident in the number of artist-run-spaces-cum-institutions and festivals that are world renown. In late summer the Adelaide Festival sprawls across the city drawing international artists and visitors, while the Contemporary Art Center of South Australia has supported a programme of local emerging artists since 1942. The Art Gallery of South Australia (AGSA) was established in 1881 and its current building dates from 1900. The AGSA has a fine collection of Pre-Raphaelite works and an important holding of works from the Heidelberg School of Australian art.
