An exhibition of artwork by 16 Albany and Great Southern female artists,
engaging with and critiquing 100 years of the Anzac mythology and reality.
"The experience of war very much depends on where one happens to be standing at the time".
Don Watson, "Lest we go over the top" essay reproduced in the HomeFRONT catalogue
"This exhibition transcends the personal and potentially critiques the national veneration of the Anzac myth. The 16 artists in this exhibition have presented us with work that each in its own way examines that myth and pulls apart some of the assumptions embedded in this national day of commemorative remembrance".
Paul Moncrieff, curator HomeFRONT, 2015.
