With Secrecy & Despatch will commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Appin Massacre. The Appin Massacre saw the lives taken of Aboriginal men, women and children, sanctioned by Governor Macquarie on 17 April 1816 in Appin, NSW. Six Australian artists and four Canadian artists have been commissioned to create new works that acknowledge and reflect on the massacre as well as drawing from other brutalities that have been committed against Indigenous peoples across the nation.
