Perspectives exhibition catalogue

Australian War Memorial

Perspectives exhibition catalogue presents the unique insights of two contemporary artists responding to the subject of peacekeeping. As official artists commissioned by the Australian War Memorial, Jon Cattapan travelled to Timor–Leste in July 2008 and eX de Medici went to the Solomon Islands in March 2009. Both artists gained insight into the role of Australian peacekeepers and from these experiences, created a series of works that reveal a personal vision and artistic style.

The exhibition was launched at the Memorial on 2 September 2010 and will be on display until 2 March 2011. From July 2011 the exhibition will travel for two years to regional and metropolitan galleries throughout Australia.
