The first posthumous exhibition by Myuran Sukumaran, who was executed in Indonesia in 2015.
Potentially one of the more important events at this year's Sydney Festival is this posthumous exhibition from Australian Myuran Sukumaran. Now a household name in this country, these works were all created during Sukumaran's incarceration in Bali's Kerobokan Prison.
Curated by 2011 Archibald winner Ben Quilty and Campbelltown Arts Centre director Michael Dagostino, Another Day in Paradise displays not only Sukumaran's work, but works by other artists specially commissioned in response to the death penalty. This exhibition brings to the fore the discussion surrounding capital punishment around the world, and opens up a dialogue regarding art, redemption and rehabilitation.
This is one of 15 next-level events to see at Sydney Festival. Check out the whole list.
