1966: The Year That Changed The World
- Date: 02 August 2016 - 30 June 2017
- Venue: Birdwood Avenue
1966 was the year that Australia sent a Task Force to Vietnam, the year the first National Servicemen served in the war and the year of the battle of Long Tan. Australia felt the heat of the Cold War and the throes of a youth revolution, in the year the first baby boomers came of age. Fifty years on, this exhibition tells the story of a year that changed Australia and the world. 1966, the year that changed the world is one of three temporary exhibitions in the Galleries of Remembrance, located in the undercroft beneath the Shrine of Remembrance, Victoria’s largest and most visited war memorial of National Significance. The Galleries feature over 800 objects, photographs, uniforms and works of art illustrating the experiences of Australians at war and in peacekeeping operations, from the 1850's to the present day.
Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori: Dulka Warngiid – Land of All
- Date: 23 September 2016 - 29 January 2017
- Venue: Federation Square
This retrospective survey and celebration of the life and work of Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori c.1924–2015 features over thirty works on loan from Queensland Art Gallery - Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane. Gabori was a contemporary artist of considerable sophistication and dare and a distinguished senior Kaiadilt woman artist from Bentinck Island in the Queensland’s Gulf of Carpentaria. Her indefatigable zeal to communicate her stories, knowledge, and experiences accumulated over an incredible life — spanning over 90 years — won her great admiration and has left an astonishing cultural legacy. The exhibition Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori: Dulka Warngiid – Land of All traces the stylistic trajectory of Gabori’s oeuvre, encompassing her earliest small-scale canvases of 2005, iconic large-scale collaborative works with other Kaiadilt women, her singular monumental canvases of daring colour juxtapositions, through to her almost monochromatic paintings and works on bark produced at the end of her career. This exhibition Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori: Dulka Warngiid – Land of All is a Queensland Art Gallery - Gallery of Modern Art touring exhibition.
