How do we think about power, politics and gender in Western Sydney?

In conjunction with his new exhibition, Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran will be joined by a panel of prominent artist and writers to discuss the themes of power, politics and gender, and their resonances in a Western Sydney context.

Ramesh pushes the boundaries of figurative sculpture and ceramic conventions through his multi-disciplinary art practice. In 2019, the artist will present his first solo exhibition in a Western Sydney art space at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre.
