Eugenia Lim – The Ambassador
The Ambassador brings together Australian artist Eugenia Lim’s most recent body of work. In this three-part project, Lim transforms herself into the Ambassador, a Mao-like persona who sits halfway between truth and fantasy. She takes on new roles in uncovering the Australian-Asian narrative, drilling down into racial politics, the social costs of manufacturing and the role of architecture in shaping society.
This Anzac Day dawn service will commemorate the final year of the Anzac Centenary. The dawn service will be held at 6.20am at the War Memorial in Eyre Park. After the service, a breakfast will be served in the council car park at the rear of the RSL hall.
The Anzac Day parade will assemble at 9.30am in Adelaide Place in front of the Port Lincoln Junior Primary School and march to the War Memorial. The RSL clubrooms will be open for refreshments and a few games of two-up. Anzac Day is a time when Australians reflect on the many different meanings of war and is commemorated with activities that recognise the sacrifices of those who served and those still serving.
