Gallipoli Exhibitions at the Fremantle Arts Centre


Fremantle Arts Centre, City of Fremantle will be hosting three exhibitions that mark the 100 year anniversary of the World War I Gallipoli landing. 

See descriptions of all three exhibitions below, as well as details on a tour of these works with exhibition curators and artists; this event is titled Artspoken. Please note: entry to the Fremantle Arts Centre and to these exhibitions if FREE. 


Gallipoli: 'The Beautiful City'

Artist: Lev Vykopal

Curator: Dr Ric Spencer 

Gallipoli 'the beautiful city' reflects upon Gallipoli's contrasting history as a site of beautify, horror and for Australians, legend. Inspired by his 2013 residency on the Gallipoli Peninsula, WA artist Lev Vykopal's drawings, paintings, plein-air observations and graphic works document iconic sites such as the eroded gullies of Anzac Cove and the trenches at the Nek as they exist today. These beautiful, tranquil scenes are at odds with the horrors experienced there one hundred years ago. 

There will be a comprehensive, free audio guide to accompany the exhibition in which the artist talks about the history of the sites depicted and his experiences there.  

 

Exhibition dates: 11 April - 24 May
