Weapons For The Soldier
Hazelhurst Arts Centre
11 November 2018 - 3 February 2019
Opens this Sunday, 11 November 2018
Tony Albert, Richard Lewer and Alex Seton are included in Weapons For The Soldier, a groundbreaking exhibition initiated by the young men of the APY Lands, bringing together indigenous and non-indigenous Australian artists to examine complex themes of weaponry, warfare and protecting land and country. The exhibition explores themes related to Fighting for Country and deep connection to Country, evocative of both the broader tenets of the ANZAC legacy as well as the district position of Indigenous people within Australia who have long fought to maintain cultural strength and pride.
