Here is the link to the Leon Compton, ABC Radio interview with Barbara Polla, Sam Wallman and Mary Knights. Also, the exhibition was covered in a Mercury online story.

Human history, worldwide, is characterized by an unending duality between imprisonment and freedom, and our humane Journey to Freedom is far from at an end, we have yet a long way to go. We still are prisoners of a mindset, as written by Rob White, professor of Criminology at the University of Tasmania, who states that to achieve a better outcome of punishment in the Australian context, the best place for the offender is in the community – in our community, and may be in the community of art, too.

Art is one essential freedom. It is the light behind the door, the last image you will see, by mounir fatmi, all the way back in the Argyle galleries; it is the hand of Jhafis Quintero, reaching to the sun, the image that was chosen to communicate the exhibition.

So let’s all throw our harmless axes, high towards freedom, following the example of French artist Rachel Labastie, aiming high for freedom, for art and for life.

Freedom forever! with Janet Biggs, Nicolas Daubanes, mounir fatmi, Shaun Gladwell, Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige, Ali Kazma, Rachel Labastie, Ricky Maynard, Robert Montgomery, Jean-Michel Pancin, Jhafis Quintero and Sam Wallman.
