Sakahan: International Indigenous Art
Welcoming Australian artists Danie Mellor, Richard Bell & Vernon Ah Kee
At the National Gallery in Ottawa, from May 17, 2013 to Sep 2, 2013
This summer, the National Gallery of Canada is staging one of the most
ambitious contemporary art exhibitions in its history. With installations
filling both floors of our special exhibition spaces as well as our
contemporary art galleries-not to mention several public spaces inside
and outside the Gallery-Sakahan: International Indigenous Art is Canada's
must-see exhibition this year.
Attention Oz & Kiwi Expats:
Anzac centenary ballot to accommodate places for 10,500 at Gallipoli
Attendance at key events - the dawn service, the later Australian service
at Lone Pine and the NZ service at Chunuk Bair - has been fixed at 10,500.
That's about double the number who attended commemoration events
on Gallipoli this year. Under the proposed ballot, 8000 of those places
had been allocated to Australia, 2000 to New Zealand and 500 for officials.
Places will be available for surviving widows of Gallipoli veterans,
their descendants and Australian and New Zealand citizens.
Registration for the ballot will open in November and close at the end of January 2014.
Successful applicants will be notified in March.
