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


1993 | A busy year for Boyd
Public Talk

This talk, in the grounds of the Homestead, where Arthur Boyd lived and worked, will cover stories about the making of Sangkuriang in 1993, the same year the Boyds gifted Bundanon to the nation. 

In 1993 Arthur Boyd created Sangkuriang: A legend of West Java with printmaker Indra Deigan. The same year, he and wife Yvonne made the gift of Bundanon to the people of Australia, and a major retrospective of his work opened at AGNSW. 

Visit the Homestead where Boyd lived and worked to hear about his practice, life and the legacy created by the Bundanon gift. Join Bundanon’s Collection Manager, Jennifer Thompson, for an introductory talk, followed by a Homestead tour with one of Bundanon’s knowledgeable volunteers.

Tales of Land and Sea

This event is part of Bundanon’s program of live events for current exhibition Tales of Land and Sea.

Tales of Land and Sea brings together three distinct projects exploring storytelling, mythological narratives, migration and the diasporic experience. Drawing from both personal narratives and Eastern mythologies, each project highlights age-old themes of longing, displacement, cultural connection and belonging.
