Currently on display as part of the Go East exhibition, Jitish Kallat’s installation Public notice 2 is based on a speech made by Mahatma Gandhi on the eve of the 1930 Salt March, a landmark event in the Indian independence movement. Tonight, the Hon Michael Kirby returns to Art After Hours to reflect on the role of art in protest and change. Before his talk, join the Gallery’s deputy director and curator of Go East, Suhanya Raffel, for an overview of the exhibition. Afterwards, you can catch a live performance of Indian classical music or a screening of the Korean mystery thriller Oldboy.
