Daniel Boyd receives commission for Australian War Memorial pavilion

Buxton Contemporary Collection artist Daniel Boyd has received a commission to design a new pavilion in collaboration with Edition Office at the Australian War Memorial. The work, For Our Country, will recognise and commemorate the military service and experience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait islanders. For Our Country will occupy a prominent position in the Memorial Sculpture Garden and is planned to be constructed in November/December 2018.

Daniel Boyd is currently included in the National Gallery of Australia’s touring exhibition Defying Empire: 3rd National Indigenous Art Triennial, curated by Tina Baum, currently showing at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory until 15 July 2018.
