Robyn Hughes Passchendaele Exhibition

Posted on September 28th, 2017

Commemorating Passchendaele – Home Front to Front Line by Robyn Hughes aims to bring those young men back from anonymity. From excerpts of local bank clerk Monty Ingram’s frontline diary and newspaper entries recording the knitted contributions of New Zealand’s women – sent to brothers, fathers and husbands – Robyn’s work tracks her attempt to understand what happened at Passchendaele through personal stories from the frontline, published accounts of home front efforts, and her own experience as a contemporary reflection on the war a century later.

Commemorating Passchendaele – Home Front to Frontline opens to the public on the 17 September 2017 at Te Koputu a te whanga a Toi – the Whakatane Library and Exhibition Centre.

This exhibition is part of New Zealand’s First World War Centenary – 2014 – 2019.

The exhibition will be presented for 2 weeks in April 2018 at NorthArt Gallery, Norman King Square, Ernie Mays Street, Northcote, Auckland.
