Follow the Flag: Australian Artists at War 1914–45
24 April – 16 August, Level 3, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne (free entry)
To mark the centenary of the landing at Gallipoli Cove, the NGV presents a major exhibition showing the work of Australian war artists from 1914 to 1945. The exhibition comprises a diverse range of works, including paintings, drawings, photographs, sculpture, and vernacular art. Through the works of some of Australia’s most well-known artists – such as Arthur Streeton, Russell Drysdale, Albert Tucker, Joy Hester, Frank Hurley and Max Dupain – as well as soldier artists and unknown makers, the exhibition reveals the experiences of Australians actively engaged in the armed forces and those at home. Importantly, it reflects the diversity of attitudes and experiences of this turbulent period in Australia and around the world.
