REVIEW – National Anthem
In a review of National Anthem in Art Almanac, John Buckley writes:
“Loaded in ways the show’s title might not immediately suggest, ‘National Anthem’ is the cri de couer the Australian art world — and the nation at large — so desperately needs. The works on display yank at your collar and shake you to the core; they demand better of you, of me, and our institutions.”
