Culture & War


Darian-Smith, K and McKew, M and Green, C and van Wyk, S, Culture & War, ANZAC Centenary Lectures, 22 July 2015, University of Melbourne (2015) [Plenary Presentation]

Official URL:


The First World War brought great social and cultural changes to Australia. The experience of soldiers travelling internationally, the national mobilisation, the grief and loss. This forum will discuss the way in which these changes are revealed in the artwork of the period, and how art informs our understanding of the emerging Australian culture.

This discussion will draw on the exhibition Follow the Flag: Australian Artists at War showing at NGV Australia from 24 Apr 2015 16 Aug 2015

This event is part of the University of Melbourne ANZAC Centenary Lectures, presented in partnership with the National Gallery of Victoria.
