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.
