The artist will reflect on her small sculptures, created and selected in response to sharing the space with Sidney Nolan’s 9 panel work Riverbend.
Jacqueline Bradley will be joined by Jennifer Thompson, Collections and Exhibitions Manager of Bundanon Trust to discuss the perspectives artists can derive through an intimate engagement with a particular environment.
