An Australian War Memorial touring exhibition
Stella Bowen: art, love & war is the first retrospective of the work of expatriate Australian artist Stella Bowen. Featuring seventy-two works spanning over forty years, the exhibition brings together works from the Australian War Memorial collection and private collections throughout Australia, Britain, and the United States. Stella Bowen’s career took her from Adelaide to London and Paris. Towards the end of her career she was appointed an official RAAF war artist. This exhibition includes works from her earlier bohemian period, as well as her later, and better-known, wartime paintings.
Richard Avedon People celebrates the work of American photographer Richard Avedon (1923 to 2004). With work from 1949 to 2002, the exhibition offers an in-depth overview of Avedon’s achievements in the art of black and white portraiture photography. In the show, instantly recognisable and influential artists, celebrities, and political activists including Truman Capote, Elizabeth Taylor, Twiggy, Malcolm X, and Bob Dylan are presented alongside portraits of the unknown or long forgotten. Coming soon, opening 6 December 2014
