Contemporary Gallipoli

Saturday 20 October 2018 to Sunday 25 November 2018

Coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI, Blue Mountains City Art Gallery will showcase 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. Exhibition curated by Meredith Brice.
