Exhibitions, Anzac Voices

  • The Australian War Memorial is excited to announce that it has won highly commended for the temporary exhibition ANZAC voices at the Museum & Galleries National Awards (MAGNA) in Launceston, Tasmania last week. MAGNA celebrates the best exhibition work from around Australia.

    The Memorial would like to thank the Anzac voices exhibition team, Wingrove design and the Definitive Group for transforming the Memorial's Special Exhibition Gallery to tell the story of the harsh realities of what Australians endured on Gallipoli and the Western Front, in the mud of Flanders and the deserts of Sinai-Palestine.

    We are celebrating in great company with the winner being Cai Gou-Qoan: Falling back to earth, Queensland Art Gallery – Gallery of Modern Art.

    The exhibition will remain on display until late November 2014.

  • I'd love to being something like this into our Library at Streaky Bay. Is there any chance that this exhibition will tour? I've booked Memorial Boxes before with good comments being made by all, however something new and audio-visual would be wonderful!

  • Hi Lauren - thank you for your interest. The exhibition will stay open until 28 November. It is not sheduled to travel - mainly because it holds original documents that now need to go off display. The is some online information on the exhibition here including the documents - http://www.awm.gov.au/exhibitions/anzac-voices/ Most of the collections featured in the exhibition are digitised in full and available online as part of the Anzac Connections project - http://www.awm.gov.au/1914-1918/anzac-connections/
