Consequences - Exhibition Project

Consequences was a major exhibition project that explored the far-reaching effects of the First World War on Albury and surrounding communities. It uncovered both the expected and unexpected stories and impacts of the conflict, with a major exhibition at Albury LibraryMuseum and displays at six partner museums. The project was a collaboration between AlburyCity, Greater Hume, Murray Arts and six regional museums: Culcairn Station House Museum, Headlie Taylor Header Museum, Jindera Pioneer Museum, Holbrook Submarine Museum, Woolpack Inn Museum, and Wymah Museum. It was supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.

Three artists in residence were invited to create new work for the project, responding to the themes and stories from each of the seven sites. The artists in residence were Stephanie Jakovac, Facing Australia (Karen Donnelly, Tony Nott and Raimond de Weerdt) and Dr Treahna Hamm.

Filmmaker Jacqui Schulz, photographer Paul Temple and visual artist Tracie MacVean also contributed to the project. The rich research outcomes were enhanced by the engagement of project curators Bethany Thornber and Andrea Briggs.
