Guided tour: barrangal dyara (skin and bones)

In association with Kaldor Public Art Project 32: Jonathan Jones

Join our Indigenous educators to learn about the Gallery’s profound historic connections with the Sydney International Exhibition of 1879.

Then walk across to the Royal Botanic Garden for a guided tour of the 32nd Kaldor Public Art Project, barrangal dyara (skin and bones). This vast sculptural installation by Wiradjuri/Kamilaroi artist Jonathan Jones transforms the site of that exhibition – the magnificent Garden Palace – which tragically burned down in 1882, destroying countless Aboriginal objects collected along the colonial frontier.

For more information about the project, see the Kaldor Public Art Projects website

Note: the tour will no longer take place on 1 and 2 October 2016. The Gallery apologises for any inconvenience.
