Association of Ukrainians in Victoria
Stand against the Russian war in Ukraine
An exhibition by Walkley Award winning photojournalist Gary Ramage documenting the destruction, pain and suffering caused by Russia’s war on Ukraine will be on display at the Australian National Veterans Arts Museum in Melbourne throughout May.
In 2022 Gary, who has more than 30 years’ experience in the industry and served with the Australian Army for 20 years, travelled to Ukraine to visit areas on the front line to “document the tragedy of war…and make pictures that would show the struggle of the people of Ukraine”.
The exhibition will include works of art by Ukrainian war veterans, previously displayed at the Sydney Invictus Games in 2018. The Russian invasion of the Crimean peninsula and eastern Ukraine in early 2014 led to the death of 9,000 soldiers and tens of thousands of soldiers who returned home and needed to resume their normal lives. Art played a role in helping veterans overcome trauma, build resilience and connect with others.
In Melbourne, the exhibition will be open Tuesday & Thursday, 12:00 – 4:00pm, during the month of May
at: The Australian National Veterans Arts Museum, 312 St Kilda Rd, Southbank
