The Samstag Museum of Art, University of South Australia presents two exhibitions from the Australian War Memorial alongside work by Adelaide-based artists The Unbound Collective.

FOR COUNTRY, FOR NATION_

For Country, for Nation reflects the experience of war from the perspective of First Nations Australians and features contemporary responses to conflict by artists such as Tony Albert, Yhonnie Scarce, Megan Cope, Gordon Bennett, Brian Robinson and Shirley Macnamara. This Australian War Memorial Touring exhibition brings to light the long-standing tradition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in fighting for Country to reveal stories of service in the military and on the front lines of war.

REALITY IN FLAMES_

The first exhibition dedicated exclusively to exploring how Australian modernist artists responded creatively to the Second World War. Comprising over eighty artworks drawn from the Australian War Memorial’s collection, Reality in flames features work by leading artists of the time including Joy Hester, Sidney Nolan and Albert Tucker.
