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.
