Tuesday, September 13, 2016

The installation of Jonathan Jones' barrangal dyara (skin and bones) is nearing completion on site at The Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney.

As we eagerly await the work's completion, we take a look back at the almost equally rapid, hugely ambitious process of building the Garden Palace over seven months in 1879.
