This exhibition ran in 3 different forms – as War Stories at the Town Hall Gallery, Hawthorn, as ‘Til Death Do Us Part at Trocedero Art Space, Footscray and sponsored by the Department of Community Services at the Central Goldfields Art Gallery, Maryborough. Collected wedding dresses were paired up with stories of failed marriages. Society conditions women that the white wedding is the highlight of their existence when in fact many marriages end in divorce.
