HEARTS AND MINDS: Wartime Propaganda
An Australian War Memorial Touring Exhibition Propaganda has been used to influence audiences for as long as recorded history. By presenting facts selectively and using loaded language to provoke emotional reactions rather than rational responses, it seeks to promote the agenda of a particular group. Posters were an ideal means of communicating propaganda: impermanent yet public, they were designed to be noticed, and could be printed and distributed quickly in large numbers. The Australian War Memorial holds a large collection of wartime posters from government–issued campaign posters to handmade posters protesting the war in Vietnam. Hearts and minds: wartime propaganda introduces this collection, featuring home-front propaganda from the First and Second World Wars.

SCARS: Elisabeth Cummings Etchings
For over fifteen years, Cummings has made regular visits to the College of Fine Arts, UNSW, to work with Master printmaker Michael Kempson of Cicada Press. Cummings’ renowned mark making is perfectly suited to the printing process of etching. Her lines, grooves and indentations meld into the plate and accentuate her exquisite drafting and drawing abilities. The works presented here are a stunning example of the etchings created over an extended period of time at Cicada Press by a significant Australian abstract artist.
Open Tues – Sun 10am – 4pm. Closed Mon. Closed Public Holidays & for installation.
