 Apologies to Roadkill: life and death in contemporary Australian art exhibiting artist Shaun Gladwell will be at GYRACC to present a free public talk on Saturday 4 February from 2-3pm.

Shaun Gladwell is an internationally-renowned contemporary artist whose body of work spans moving image, painting, photography, installation and performance events. Born in Sydney, Gladwell graduated from the Sydney College of the Arts in 1996 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours First Class).
