OFFICIAL OPENING 

On Saturday 15 May, The Crossing Theatre will host the Opening of 72 Hours – the exhibition and film of Myuran Sukumaran’s last days.

During his time in jail, Australian artist, Ben Quilty visited Myuran and spent time with him discussing art on many levels – processes, materials, and the power of art in regard to expression of ones thoughts. 

Ben Quilty believes that 72 Hours is an event that should be seen by everyone, especially young people who are still finding themselves. “This event is about humanity, life’s choices and the power of rehabilitation, although in this case, rehabilitation was unfortunately not recognised!”

Ben Quilty and some of Myuran’s legal team will be attending to pay respects to their friend and colleague, Myuran Sukumaran and his family.

Time: 7:00pm (Movie first, then Exhibition)

72 HOURS
MYURAN SUKUMARAN
16 – 30 MAY 2021 | THE CROSSING THEATRE

 

Myuran Sukumaran was an Australian man who was convicted in Indonesia of drug trafficking as a member of the Bali Nine. After a criminal trial, Sukumaran was sentenced on 14 February 2006 by the Denpasar District Court to execution by firing squad. During his time in Kerobokan prison, Sukumaran not only became an accomplished artist but transformed his life and addressed his demons. Sukumaran was determined to make his family proud. After an outpour of condemnation from human rights institutions and the Australian Government, Sukumaran’s plea for clemency was rejected by the President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo on 30 December 2014. Sukumaran was executed on 29 April 2015 and as a result, a film and exhibition of his works were created.

 

Exhibition: ‘72 HOURS’
Featuring 13 powerful painting created in the last 72 hours of Myuran’s life.

 

Movie: ‘Guilty’ rated M
Directed by Matthew Sleeth, ‘Guilty’ depicts the final 72-hours in the life of Myuran Sukumaran, as he farewells his family and creates his final paintings.

 

From 15 to 30 May 2021, The Crossing Theatre will host both the exhibition and the film as one. The duration is approximately two hours and starts with the film and importantly finishes with the time to wander the exhibition and contemplate the outcomes.
