George Lambert, Mouth of the Wady el Arish, 1918, watercolour, gouache and pencil on paper. Acquired under the official war art scheme, Australian War Memorial
The Australian War Memorial has the largest collection of landscape paintings by George Lambert (1873–1930). This exhibition traces Lambert's work as an official war artist on his first journey to Palestine and the Sinai in 1918. It also includes paintings Lambert completed during the Australian Historical Mission to Gallipoli in 1919. This focused exhibition allows viewers to consider a specific and little-known body of work by this important Australian artist. The exhibition includes small panel paintings, drawings and watercolours, and takes as its main theme Lambert's representation of significant landscapes and how these connect to individual and national memories of war.
Richard Avedon People celebrates the work of American photographer Richard Avedon (1923 to 2004).

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.
