Twenty seven of the artists are from the art centres of the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunyjatjara (APY) Lands. The 14 invited artists are some of Australia’s most important Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists. ‘Weapons for the soldier’ will foster dialogue around multi-geographical and multigenerational fights for land, Country and freedom experienced by Australians, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, as well as the Indigenous experience in Australian military history.
