Jill Orr’s The Promised Land Refigured explores a new wave of movement by sea. Framed by the impact of Australia’s policy of turning back asylum seekers who arrive by boat, the exhibition engages with the anticipated issue of global homelessness, due to the outcomes of mass destruction of homes and environments resulting from climate change.
Join us for a relaxed floor talk and hear from Jill Orr in person about the stories of the making of this exhibition and the central idea underpinning her artistic process.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
