11.11.16 Ben Quilty in ‘Sappers & Shrapnel’

The work of Australian contemporary artists will be exhibited alongside what is known as ‘trench art’ in an exhibition titled, Sappers & Shrapnel at the Art Gallery of South Australia. The term ‘trench art’ describes objects made from the waste of warfare by solidiers, civilians and prisoners of war.

Featuring trench art from the collection of the Australian War Memorial, alongside compelling contemporary artwork by artists such as Ben Quilty, Sappers & Shrapnel aims to explore the human need to make art, even in the throes of wartime.
