Propaganda: A selection of posters from the Australian War Memorial, displays many of the key posters designed to inflame public opinion and fashion public thinking during the war and, in some cases, generate a wave of recruits. The artworks have come from the Australian War Memorial collection - which has one of the world’s largest collections of historic propaganda posters.

The exhibition also includes commissions from three contemporary artists: Alison Alder, Wendy Murray and Jake Holmes, who responded to posters in the AWM the collection.

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.
