Tokkotai: Contemporary Australian and Japanese Artists on war and the Battle of Sydney Harbour is a suite of exhibitions and immersive experiences timed to correspond with the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Sydney Harbour. On the night of 31 May 1942, three Japanese midget submarines entered the waters of Sydney Harbour embarking on a surprise attack which resulted in chaos and panic in the nation’s largest and oldest city leaving an indelible mark on Australian identity and the course of our history.  

Artists include:

MICHELLE BELGIORNO: A Thousand Stitches of Hope
KEN DONE: ATTACK - Japanese Midget Submarines in Sydney Harbour
JENNIE FEYEN: Sakura and Steel
SUE PEDLEY: Orange-Net-Work
MIKU SATO: Not the Yellow Submarines
GARY WARNER: Orange-Net-Work-Soundings

Please note: The walkway to the exhibition is sloped and unpaved. Visitors should wear sensible shoes and take appropriate care while visiting the site.


Saturday 20 May - Monday 12 June
