Weapons for the soldier is a major and ambitious exhibition bringing together Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australia artists who have made new work to examine complex and varied responses to weaponry, warfare, and their connection to protecting land and country. Weapons for the soldier is the first Anangu-curated exhibition involving non-Indigenous artists and the second major partnership project between APY Art Centre Collective and Hazelhurst Arts Centre in southern Sydney.
Weapons for the soldier fosters dialogue around multi-geographical and multi-generational fights for land, Country and freedom experienced by Australians, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, as well as the Indigenous experience in Australian military history.
