2018 refugee exhibit A4 invitation.jpg

Lost Opportunity is a collaborative humanitarian exhibition between Political artist Jill Nolan and the Tassie Nannas. It portrays the story of asylum seekers and refugees who have come by boat to Australia.

Nine paintings form the heart of the exhibit, nine paintings to honour the nine men who have died in Australia’s off-shore prisons. The paintings weave a narrative of Australia’s current refugee policy. The exhibition was inspired by the words of Iranian journalist and detainee Behrouz Boochani.

The exhibition opens February 5th at 5.30 pm and runs daily 10 am – 6 pm until 11 February.

The exhibition will be opened by Rosie Martin, 2017 Tasmanian Australian of the Year on Monday 5 February at 5.30 pm, and on Saturday 10 February at 3 pm Senator Nick McKim will speak about his visits to Australia’s off-shore detention centres.
