Presented by - GAVIN FRY (Arts) Arts Society Lecturer
Monday 8 March 2021
Three very different Australian artists have worked in the former Portuguese colony of East Timor, bringing back images of conflict and Australian service. Eric Thake ventured to Timor on behalf of the RAAF in 1945, to be followed a generation later by Rick Amor and Wendy Sharpe. They all produced work at once very personal, but also telling of Australia’s role in conflict.
