Program 61-24 Arts Friday on Eastside

A Secondary Eye Gallery opens in Queen Street, Woollahra with a solo exhibition of rare Rover Thomas works from the 1980s and 1990s, some of which have not been seen in public. Rover Thomas was the first Indigenous artist to represent Australia in the Venice Biennale in 1990. Boris Cornelissen is a founding partner and speaks on their aims of developing the secondary market for art and collectibles in Australia. The Sydney Writers Festival Artistic Director, Ann Mossip talks us through this year’s program and we hear from guest curator and poet, Jazz Money, along with featured poet Toby Fitch.

Produced and presented by Angela Stretch, from Gadigal country, we acknowledge First Nations peoples as the sovereign custodians of Country, and pay respect to Elders of past, present and to future generations. We acknowledge and value the distinct culture, customs and practices present in the many and diverse tribal nations across NSW.
