Another Day in Paradise

Tuggeranong Arts Centre presents Another Day in Paradise, a major exhibition by artist Myuran Sukumaran.

The exhibtion will be accompanied by a series of artworks by leading Australian artists, Abdul-Rahman Abdullah, Megan Cope, Jagath Dheerasekara, Khaled Sabsabi, and Matthew Sleeth, whose works respond to the death penalty and profile human rights.

Curated by Ben Quilty and Michael Dagostino, Another Day in Paradise was developed by Campbelltown Arts Centre and first presented as part of Sydney Festival. This exhibition presents a vast and sobering series of powerful portraits by Sukumaran, painted during his incarceration at Bali’s Kerobokan jail and from his final incarceration on Nusa Kambangan Island.

Another Day in Paradise highlights the importance of forgiveness and compassion for humanity, while proving the profound power of art to change lives.

Tuggeranong Arts Centre CEO Rauny Worm emphasises, ‘the Centre is very much aware of the sensitivities of this exhibition and the ethical and moral complexity surrounding Sukumaran’s story.’ For this reason, TAC will present these works along with ‘The Human Condition,’ a suite of public programs that invite the community to explore the many difficult themes and questions emerging from the works and the associated story.
