This is the second episode in a series exploring The National 2017 exhibition on show in Sydney. We speak with featured artists and key curators of the exhibition at the various participating institutions.

This week we are at the Carriageworks, and curator Nina Miall is in conversation with exhibiting artist Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran about his large scale installation work 'The Cave', and the curatorial premise behind the Carriageworks component of the exhibition.

The exhibition is a presentation of new Australia art, curated across three of Sydney's premier cultural institutions - Museum of Contemporary Art, Art Gallery of New South Wales and Carriageworks and features over 60 artists. The National 2017 is the first instalment in a series of three, from 2017-2021. Find our more about the exhibition at The National website.

Stay tuned for the final instalment, as we speak with curator Anneke Jaspers at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
