ADFAS Narrabri – War & Peace : Quilty & Gittoes
June 7, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm
War & Peace : Quilty & Gittoes
The Crossing Theatre, arrivals at 6.30pm for a 7pm start
Since the end of the Vietnam War more than forty years ago, Australians have served in many parts of the world in the role of peacekeepers. While the title might sound benign, the conflicts and experiences of those at the front can be as dramatic and dangerous as any world war. Ben Quilty and George Gittoes have both worked as war artists with these small expeditionary forces, bringing home a truly human story, filled with high emotion and drama befitting artists of deep conscience.
