About & Ticket Info
Join acclaimed artist Ben Quilty to celebrate two decades of his work.
The publication of Ben Quilty coincides with two major exhibitions of Ben's work at the art galleries of South Australia and NSW. With a foreword by Richard Flanagan, and detailing Ben's work across a range of media, the book itself is something to be treasured.
Ben's body of work reflects his experiences as a humanitarian and social commentator. He travelled to Afghanistan on behalf of the Australian War Memorial. He worked with World Vision to create Home, a collection of drawings by child refugees from Syria. And he mentored Myuran Sukumaran in Indonesia's Kerobokan Prison.
'My work is about working out how to live in this world. It's about compassion and empathy but also anger and resistance.'
Ben will be in conversation with Jennifer Bott AO, of NIDA, Bundanon Trust and the Australian Museum. Jenny and Ben have been instrumental in establishing a regional gallery in the Southern Highlands.
Tickets: $50 per person and includes one course and a glass of wine. Tickets available from The Bookshop Bowral. Ph (02) 4862 1634
