To celebrate the exhibition, Bohemian Harbour: Artists of Lavender Bay, Sydney Living Museums are hosting an exhibition viewing and a special panel discussion: A Sense of Place.

A sense of place has long dominated the question of how to define Australian art. Taking inspiration from their exhibition Bohemian Harbour: Artists of Lavender Bay, currently showing at Museum of Sydney, join Sydney Living Museums as a panel of experts discuss the importance of place to Indigenous artists.

The panel, chaired by SLM’s Peter White, Head of Indigenous Strategy & Cultural Engagement, will explore ideas around Indigenous connections to country and how this physical, spiritual and cultural influence has inspired and informed the work being created by Indigenous artists.
Speakers will include:
Emily McDaniel – independent curator, writer and educator.
Dr Fabri Blacklock – artist and academic (UNSW Art & Design).
Adam Hill (aka Blak Douglas) – artist and 2015 Archibald prize finalist.

The talk begins at 6.30pm. Guests are welcome to view the exhibition before the talk from 6pm or after the talk until 8.30pm, tickets include entry to the exhibition.
