Coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI, Blue Mountains City Art Gallery presents the touring exhibition Contemporary Gallipoli, an exhibition originally created to mark the Anzac centenary in April 2015.
The exhibition includes a diverse array of new works created by both emerging and established artists from Canakkale, near the Gallipoli Peninsula, Turkey, and Australia, whose work unites to take the viewer on an experiential journey of remembrance, and a search for meaning beyond myth and memory.
Featuring concepts of friendship and healing, the works comprise music, painting, drawing, printmaking, hand-built ceramic, sculpture, textile, mixed media installation, artist books, wearables, photo media and digital animation.
Artists featured in the exhibition include Ros Auld, Cenk Beyhan, Meredith Brice, Stephen Copland, Mark Davis, Ihsan Doğrusöz, Kate Downhill, Dianne Jones, Burt Muller, Susan O’Doherty, Toby Roberts and Chris Sainsbury.
The Macquarie University Gallery touring exhibition, curated by Meredith Brice, opens on Friday, October 19 from 6-8pm. Free event, cash bar. The exhibition is on until November 25.
