Exhibition: Behind the Lines

Sun 11 February - Sun 17 March

Each year the Behind the Lines exhibition features a broad selection of political cartoons from around Australia, providing an insight into the year in Australian politics and current affairs. This year’s Behind the Lines is swinging at the pinata, passing the parcel, and waiting for the music to stop because the theme is All Fun and Games. Cartoonists are popping on their party hats and breaking out the bunting while they take us on a journey through the year that was 2023.

Behind the Lines is a travelling exhibition developed by Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House, proudly supported by the National Collection Institutions Touring and Outreach program, an Australian Government program aiming to improve access to the national collections for all Australians.

The Opening by Dr Alex Walton, Curator, Museum of Australian Democracy, will be held on Saturday, 10 February 2024 at 2.00 pm. RSVP by 9 February 2024 by email : cowraartgallery@cowra.nsw.gov.au or here Exhibition Opening: BEHIND the LINES | The Year in Political Cartoons 2023 Tickets, Sat 10/02/2024 at 2:00 pm | Eventbrite
