APPLY FOR A RESIDENCY - Applications for Bundanon's 2025 Artists in Residence program are now open


2 November 2024 – 9 February 2025

Leading contemporary artist Jonathan Jones has been invited to curate and create new work in relationship to Bundanon and the Timbery family and community, whose cultural impact stretches from La Perouse to Wreck Bay on the south coast of New South Wales. 


Jonathan Jones

Jonathan Jones is a member of the Wiradjuri and Kamilaroi peoples of south-east Australia.

Jones works across a range of mediums, from printmaking and drawing to sculpture and film, utilising everyday materials in minimal repeated forms to explore and interrogate cultural and historical relationships and ideas from Indigenous perspectives and traditions. He is well known for his evocative site-specific installations and interventions into space.

Jones has exhibited both nationally and internationally since the late 1990s, and his work is represented in major public collections throughout Australia and in a number of public collections overseas.

The breadth of Timbery work, from shellwork and weaving to boomerangs and nawi, may be represented through works on loan and potential new collaborations with living members of the family.

Jones would undertake a residency at Bundanon to create a new work in response to Bundanon and to the legacy of this important family history, in collaboration with living practitioners from the Timbery family.


Bundanon acknowledges the people of the Dharawal and Dhurga language groups as the traditional owners of the land within our boundaries, and recognises their continuous connection to culture, community and Country.

In Dharawal the word Bundanon means deep valley.
