World Of Cricket from the Bradman Museum
at CMAG


Sat 6 December 2014 – Sun 15 March 2015

The unmistakable sound of leather on willow will echo through Canberra this summer when the city plays host to some of the world’s leading cricket nations as they compete for the prestigious ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.

Featuring rare and captivating material from the Bradman Museum, as well as contemporary equipment from those teams that will compete at Manuka Oval in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, the exhibition will bridge the historical gap between Bradman and the contemporary game, and shed a light on Canberra’s own cricketing heritage.

Women’s Power to Stop War


Sat 21 February – Sun 31 May 2015

The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) was founded in 1915. The ACT Branch (formed in 1982) has been involved in WILPF activities at all levels; from peace rallies in New York to anti-arms protests and lobbying for women to be peace negotiators in Canberra. This exhibition explores the contribution of these dedicated women to local, national,
and international peace movements.

James Lieutenant and Kate Vasallo
Mistints


Sat 4 October – Feb 2015

Mistint paint is that which has been incorrectly mixed by a paint store and is consequently useless for its intended purpose. However, for Canberra-based artistic collaborators, James Lieutenant and Kate Vassallo, mistint paint is an abject material with inherent potential.
