In celebration of the 2020 Seniors Festival and the closing weekend of C-A-C’s exhibition, Vernon Ah Kee – The Island, Macarthur over 55’s are invited to enjoy a distinctly Australian afternoon to be hosted by acclaimed artist Vernon Ah Kee.

Vernon Ah Kee is one of the most prominent and important living artists in Australia today. Spanning almost two decades, Vernon Ah Kee’s The Island profiles Ah Kee’s brilliantly diverse practice, offering challenging perspectives on contemporary Australian life and a critique of Australia’s tendency to shift issues off shore.

The afternoon tea will begin witha Welcome to Country, an exhibition tour  led by Ah Kee, followed by discussions around key themes from the exhibition to be facilitated by local Aboriginal Elders. These table discussions will take place in the galleries and will be flavoured by gourmet teas and finger food to be supplied by the Arts Centre café and the Tharawal community kitchen.
