A gallery discussion led by the Sydney artist and PhD candidate Gianni Wise. It will include Jacqueline Drinkall, along with guests Matt Kiem and Alana Lentin.  It will be on the decision by the Biennale of Sydney to sever ties with Transfield, following a campaign of pressure from artists angered by the company’s links to Australia’s offshore detention centres. Discussion will include reference to Wang Xu’s The silenced: from 1957 until today exhibition currently showing in the gallery. This will be an open forum where attendees will be invited to contribute.
