‘Quilty’ is the first major survey exhibition in a decade of one of Australia’s most acclaimed contemporary artists, Ben Quilty.

The exhibition extends from Quilty’s early reflections on the initiation rituals performed by young Australian men to his experience as an official war artist in Afghanistan and his campaign to save the lives of Bali Nine pair Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran. It also includes his revisions of the Australian landscape, and raw, intimate portraits of himself, his family and his friends.

Discover more about Ben Quilty with our range of related events, listed below, including talks and tours, pop-up performances, hand-on workshops and Up Late events. There’s also daily guided tours of the exhibition at 1pm.
