As part of Territory Tribute program of events the Australian National Veterans’ Art Museum (ANVAM) will bring the International Veterans’ Art Exhibition to Darwin. The exhibition will showcase the art of veterans from participating nations of the Invictus Games Sydney 2018. The exhibition will be displayed for the duration of Territory Tribute, beginning on Wednesday 19 February 2019 until Monday 29 April 2019.
Darwin will be the first city outside of Sydney to host the inaugural tour of the exhibition. The exhibition theme, Make your Mark, follows on from the Invictus Games Sydney 2018 theme of ‘Making your Mark Down Under’, encouraging veterans to ‘make a mark’ by engaging in art.
The International Veterans’ Arts Exhibition (IVAE) aims to showcase veterans’ art from around the world with a focus on the range of experiences and cultural diversity of veteran artists in their military service, post-military experiences and in their art practice. The exhibition comprises 18 works by 18 veterans from different nations, including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Poland, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
