Behind the Lines 2018

When 4 Jan, 2019 9:00am — 10 Nov, 2019 5:00pm Where 18 King George Terrace, Parkes Website
Venture down the rabbit hole to Behind the Lines 2018, our perennially popular exhibition of the year’s best political cartoons…

After a topsy-turvy 2018, our exhibition theme this year is Curiouser & Curiouser, inspired by the surreal charm of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

Did the political landscape of the last 12 months have you thinking you’d stepped through the looking glass to a world where nothing is as it seems? You’re not alone! Australia’s best political cartoonists worked tirelessly to make sense of the goings-on … Section 44 claiming more heads than the Queen of Hearts, Barnaby’s dramas and, of course, the federal leadership spill that gave us another new prime minister.

So… don’t be late for this important date! While the adults grin, smirk or grimace at the masterful musings of our nation’s political cartoonists, kids will love spending time in the family space.

With card games, a wall of crazy mirrors and colourful and curious dress up costumes, your children can become the characters of Wonderland!
