The Art of War

The Art of War

Tuesday 1 May 2018 > 6PM to 7.30PM


The Art of War is a unique conversation with artists Matthew Sleeth, Wendy Sharpe and Tanja Johnston from Australian National Veterans Art Museum (ANVAM) as they discuss the intersections of art and war.

Hear what these artists learned as bystanders in conflict zones, and what it was like to confront the political and cultural realities we don’t see in the media. Joining the panel, Tanja Johnston will share the art programs ANVAM have developed to work with returned soldiers.

Presented in collaboration with the Shrine of Remembrance.
