Peter Daverington: Inserting the deep past into the present

On 22 October, former Prime Minister Julia Gillard unveiled a large painting by Australian artist Peter Daverington in the Great Hall of Canberra’s Parliament House. The work was commissioned to commemorate those who have survived institutional child abuse in Australia. Steve Dow spoke to Daverington about the challenges of the commission, the role of art in making sure we don’t forget the past, his success as a New York based mural painter, and his ongoing rebellious nature.
