WAG Premanent Collection
Date: 
Saturday, 21 April 2018 to Monday, 2 July 2018
Curator/s: 
Murray Bowes

 

Through selected  works from the WAG Collection, images of gathering, harvesting, cooking and eating tell of the one thing we all have in common – the need for food.  From the bleak image of emaciated prisoners of War in Murray Griffin’s The Hungry Ones, Changi to the celebratory abundance of indigenous  fare in Food of the Western District by Patricia Clarke, artists comment on the role food plays in our lives.
