    Abstract

    Published leading ANZAC exhibition catalogue essay, and related curatorial activities in conjunction with the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery, in April 2015. Funded by the Anzac Centenary Arts and Culture Fund through the Attorney-General's Department and NSW Arts Ministry, this was for a contextual essay towards the exhibition entitled, Loss, Reverence and Longing: Anzac stories from the home front. ISBN 1-875247-95-5. The catalogue received wide distribution across the national and international museum and art gallery curatorial sectors. My catalogue essay writing was for this major exhibition in the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery for the 2015 ANZAC Centenary. The exhibition entitled: Loss, Reverence and Longing: Anzac stories from the home front explored the discourse of the ANZAC legacy through artefacts of the Anzac era selected from the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney's National Quilt register, related domestic textiles and everyday items from the era sourced from the Pioneer Women's Hut, Tumbarumba and individually commissioned contemporary responses by significant regional artists. My role within it was towards contextual catalogue essay writing in conjunction with the centenary of Anzac in April/May 2015, published nationally and internationally.
