About Face: the art of caricature
Political cartoons have always been a vibrant component of Australia’s democracy and this exhibition celebrates the art and wit of caricature.
About Face: the art of caricature features selected works of cartoonist John Frith who entertained Australians for over 60 years with his insightful and powerful depictions of political and public figures. For more on John Frith, visit our website http://frith.moadoph.gov.au/
Alongside the Frith works are a collection of sculptures by David Rowe. This appealingly grotesque assortment was rescued from the garden shed and gives visitors an insight to the way in which the 2013 Political Cartoonist of the Year thinks and works.
About Face: the art of caricature is a complement to Behind the lines 2013 where more Frith and Rowe cartoons are on display.
