About this event

Contemporary Gallipoli 2015 is an intercultural group exhibition exploring, interpreting and reflecting upon the Allied Gallipoli Campaign in Turkey within the context of marking the centenary. The exhibition takes into account both retrospective and contemporary perspectives reimagined, embedded within those histories and culture[s].
 
The exhibition utilises a transdisciplinary approach employing a range of collaborative and diverse mediums and artforms that supports transnational narratives within the context of contemporary responses. Through visual and aural narratives the exhibition builds bridges in reconnecting communities through a number of creative practices.
 
The multiplicity of viewpoints and narratives emergent within the context of "remembrance" surveyed within the exhibition, heightens our awareness to the integral role that artistic practices have upon remembrance and healing and how that plays out into the national physic.
 
The diverse art practices will collaboratively interact across the media forms from painting, drawing, sculpture, and ceramic, installation to textile, photography, digital media, and music and artisan jewellery.

Curator: Meredith Brice
 
Artists: Ros Auld, Cenk Beyhan, Meredith Brice, Stephen Copland, Mark Davis, Dr Ihan Dogrusoz, Susan O'Doherty, Kate Downhill, Dianne Jones and Burt Muller.

The Art Gallery is open for viewing Tuesday - Friday 10am - 5pm
