Symbolic Fragment: The Point of Departure

A Group exhibition curated by
Lyn Plummer at the Albury Regional Art Gallery, NSW.


The project was conceived by Lyn Plummer as a response to the call for involvement in the Bonegilla’97 Reunion Festival. The Fiftieth Anniversary of the establishment of the Bonegilla Migrant Reception Centre. Some 320,000 voluntary immigrants, refugees and displaced persons were accommodated for varying periods here, on the shores of Lake Hume. Many had traded their skills and labour for two years in order to escape the chaos of Europe after the Second World War.
