Propaganda : A selection of posters from the Australian War Memorial & recent commissions
Date: 20 April - 8 July 2018
Location: Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery Civic Reserve, Dunns Road Mornington, Victoria 3931, Australia
Propaganda: A selection of posters from the Australian War Memorial presents posters from across all of the major 20th century conflicts and gives a remarkable insight into the power of information graphics and the use of advertising and communication strategies in eliciting fear, loathing and calls to action.
Three contemporary Australian poster artists, Alison Alder, Wendy Murray and Jake Holmes, have been commissioned to make new work in response to the propaganda posters in the AWM collection. These commissions creatively explore and celebrate the Memorial’s poster collection and present fresh perspectives on the unique aesthetic and history of propaganda posters.
Propaganda is co-curated by Danny Lacy Senior Curator MPRG and Alex Torrens, Curator of Art, Australian War Memorial. Exclusively presented at MPRG, this project is timed to commemorate the centenary of the First World War 1914-1918.
