Tarnanthi Exhibition

VIETNAM – ONE IN, ALL IN is a contemporary exhibition that acknowledges Aboriginal veterans’ service in the Vietnam War – before, during and after the conflict. Featuring a collection of works by selected Aboriginal artists, the exhibition acts as a collective response to our current need to uncover and give voice to those who have remained silent throughout history. Together the works capture the personal stories, lived experiences and military history of our Aboriginal veterans – inviting us to pause, reflect, recognise and honour our South Australian Aboriginal veterans.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples should be aware that this exhibition and related material include images and names of people who have passed away.
