Campbelltown Arts Centre and Sydney Festival present the first major exhibition by artist Myuran Sukumaran along with a series of newly commissioned artworks by leading Australian artists.
Exhibition: 13 January to 26 March 2017
Forums: 14 January, 4 February and 18 March 2017
Curated by Ben Quilty and Michael Dagostino, Another Day In Paradise presents a vast and sobering series of powerful portraits by Sukumaran, painted during his incarceration at Bali’s Kerobokan jail and from his final incarceration on Nusa Kambangan Island.
Works by artist, Myuran Sukumaran will be exhibited alongside a series of newly commissioned artworks by leading Australian artists, Abdul-Rahman Abdullah, Megan Cope, Jagath Dheerasekara, Taloi Havini, Khaled Sabsabi, and Matthew Sleeth, whose works respond to the death penalty and profile human rights.
This exhibition highlights the importance of forgiveness and compassion for humanity, while proving the profound power of art to change lives.
To accompany the Another Day in Paradise, Campbelltown Arts Centre will present a series of forums exploring the life of Myuran Sukumaran, the death penalty and restorative justice systems globally.
All forums are free, but RSVP is essential to secure your place. A limit of two tickets per forum applies.
