      Art After Hours, Celebrity talk

For the 32nd Kaldor Public Art Project, Wiradjuri/Kamilaroi artist Jonathan Jones presents barrangal dyara (skin and bones) in the Royal Botanic Garden near the Gallery.

His vast sculptural installation transforms the site of the magnificent Garden Palace which tragically burned down in 1882, destroying countless Aboriginal objects collected along the colonial frontier. The project is Jones’ response to the immense loss felt throughout Australia due to the destruction of these culturally significant items.

Tonight, at Art After Hours, we’ll be joined by Wesley Enoch, Sydney Festival Director 2017-19. Wesley will reflect on the history, future and cultural significance of the Botanic Gardens and the spectacle that was the Garden Palace.
