Baden Pailthorpe: Art Exhibition
Saturday 7th February - Sunday 26th April12:00 pm - 2:30pm
In 2013 Baden Pailthorpe was the Artist in REsidence at the Australian War Memorial, Canberra. Instead of being sent to interpret a war sone, Pailthorpe was embedded whitin the institution itself, focusing on the artefacts and practices that make up its collection. Spatial Operations is resultant work of the residency. It examines the power of artefacts, ANZAC mythology and the commemorative function of offical narratives. Its inaugral display at Newcastle Art Gallery will coincide with the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landing in Gallipoli.
