ARTISTS' COMMITTEE (2017-)
The Artists’ Committee makes collaborative public work around the intersection of ethics, money, politics and culture.
In 2017 the Artists’ Committee carried out a project that examines and highlights the National Gallery of Victoria’s (NGV) connection with the immigration detention industry through its contract with Wilson Security. This project successfully ended the NGV’s commercial partnership with Wilson Security—a company known to have committed human rights abuses against asylum seekers and refugees—through a series of unsanctioned performative interventions.
