The commemoration of war expresses a celebration of service and a remembrance of the fallen. Yet it can also privilege certain forms of service over others. This forum will discuss the silences and absences in the commemoration of War, drawing on a major new exhibition by artist Brook Andrew at the Ian Potter Museum of Art.
Professor Marcia Langton, Dr Vincent Alessi and Brook Andrew will join Maxine McKew to examine the omission of Indigenous service from official forms of commemoration, and relate them to Indigenous issues today.
It draws on a major new exhibition, Brook Andrew Sanctuary: Tombs of the outcasts at the Ian Potter Museum of Art, and is part of the University of Melbourne ANZAC Centenary Lectures.
On this evening, you are invited to view Brook Andrew Sanctuary: Tombs of the outcasts. The Ian Potter Museum of Art will offer extended opening hours from 5pm - 6.15pm on Wednesday 27 May to allow guests special access to the exhibition prior to the panel discussion which begins at 6.30pm at Sidney Myer Asia Centre.
