Event description

Description

‘Victory Medal’ has toured for the past four years, to provincial museums throughout New Zealand as a tribute to the thousands of young men and women, who served on the Western Front in WW1.

As the soldiers did a century ago ‘Victory Medal’ made the sea journey to Europe. It traversed the countryside of France and Belgium to the battlefield towns of Arras, Messines, and by November this year, will go to Le Quesnoy, commemorating the centenary of these three significant battles involving New Zealanders.

A Moving Tribute is a photographic journey of ‘Victory Medal’ in each of its 8 installations including its presence at Arras where the work formed the heart of Tony McNeight’s poppy installation, together creating the memorable Coquelicot de Paix/Poppy of Peace viewed by thousands.

Victory Medal (Coquelicot de Paix/Poppy of Peace)

A Moving Tribute will officially open with a special event on Monday 23 April, 6:30pm – 8:00pm in the Main Gallery, alongside Tony McNeights’s exhibition opening for The Giant Poppy Peace Project.
