Artist talk with Stephen Dupont | Australians in PNG

7 October 2017

Join exhibiting artist Stephen Dupont for an insight into his exhibition and publication 'Piksa Niugini'. Stephen Dupont has journeyed to PNG over a period of years, through some of the most important cultural and historical zones in Papua New Guinea: the Highlands, Sepik, Bougainville and the capital city, Port Moresby. In 'Piksa Niugini' these trips are documented through images and diary entries, with Dupont capturing the spirit of human life on one of the world’s last truly wild frontiers. This work was conducted with the support of the Robert Gardner Fellowship of Photography at Harvard’s Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology.

2-3pm Saturday 7 October
