Page Blackie Gallery artist, John Walsh, will be included in the exhibition ‘Your Friend the Enemy’, opening at Pataka Art + Museum on 21 November 2015. During April and May 2014 artists from Australia and New Zealand travelled to Turkey on a painting and research trip, coinciding with the lead-up to the centenary year of the Gallipoli campaign. The resulting exhibition is a showcase of artworks inspired by the artists’ first-hand experiences of the battle sites.
Pataka Art + Museum will be the first New Zealand venue for the ‘Your Friend the Enemy’ exhibition, which has been touring venues in Australia since 2015. You can read more about the exhibition here.
