Hear from artist Michael Armitage, in conversation with curator Natasha Bullock, as he discusses the ideas that inform his paintings in the exhibition The Promised Land.

Michael Armitage’s large and lush paintings reconsider cultural traditions and stereotypes, weaving together history, politics, mythology and personal experience. Join the artist and curator Natasha Bullock as they discuss key works and ideas in the artist’s first exhibition in Australia, including new works that reflect on the 2017 Kenyan elections and the political rallies and dissidence that followed.

Your ticket includes a glass of Bimbadgen Art Series wine, available after the talk.
