An ANZAC Centenary Exhibition - A Centenary of Australian War Art - consists of 41 artworks from the Australian War Memorial depicting Australian military experience from the First World War to Afghanistan. It is the most comprehensive exhibition of official Australian war art ever seen outside Australia.

Conflicts depicted include both World Wars, as well as Korea, Vietnam and the Middle East. Peacekeeping missions in East Timor and the Solomon Islands are also represented. The exhibition features Australia’s best known war artists, including George Lambert and Arthur Streeton.

These works highlight the crucial role Australians have played in some of the most defining moments in modern history, as well as the terrible losses and hardships endured by Australians in war over the past century.

Presented by the Embassy in partnership with the Australian War Memorial and sponsored by Lockheed Martin.
