We've had some wonderful coverage of the post war project and POST-WAR Thousand Mile Stare exhibition lately. On Anzac Day The Canberra Times ran a feature written by ANCA's critic-in-residence' Jess Oliver New Battleground for Returned Soldiers after WWI. If you're in Canberra and can make it along to the exhibition it runs until 10 May 2015 at ANCA Gallery - 1 Rosevear Avenue, Dickson ACT. Open Wed-Sun 12-5pm. To see images from the opening visit Life in Canberra, Andrew Sikorski took some wonderful snaps of the event. I sat at ANCA this weekend and met some lovely people coming through, among them I spoke with a woman who had grown up in Red Cliffs, and met the mother of a veteran who had served in Iraq and struggled with depression. It's been really wonderful to meet people who engage with the work in different ways and it's especially rewarding to discuss the research and process of making with them and listen to their perspectives on the content.
