"AUSSIE"- Works by Peter Drew
Salisbury Community Hub - John Harvey Community Hall
27 February - 26 March 2023
Peter Drew is an Australian artist whose work is concerned with memory, nationalism, criminality, brown paper and mythology. Peter has exhibited at many major arts institutions around Australia, though his most prominent work is installed on city streets. He is best known for his AUSSIE poster series. These posters are of people who lived in Australia and were made to apply for exemptions to the dictation test which was a function of the White Australia policy. The exemption allowed them to leave Australia and return without being racially excluded.
