Myuran Sukumaran: Another Day in Paradise

After being one of the most important events at 2017 Sydney Festival, this posthumous exhibition from Australian Myuran Sukumaran is coming to Victoria. 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.

It will be on display at Bendigo Art Gallery until September 16. If you want to make a day of it, check out our arts and culture guide to Bendigo.
