Down The Wire - Bill Hay - Ray Hughes Gallery
featuring works by Bill Hay, Glenn Morgan, Spook aka Gary James, Bill
Leak, Bruce Petty and Alan Moir, opening on Saturday, 16th February
2008. Looking back on works of art and commentary created during the
former Prime Minister's 11-and-a-half years in parliament, the
paintings, sculptures and cartoons allow us to reflect on the
socio-political issues of this period.
Tackling subject matter including the war in Iraq, immigration
detention centres and industrial relations reform with hard-hitting
directness and humour, A History Lesson: Art from the Howard Era
presents the audience with lessons that ultimately highlight attitudes
to human values.
