In 1940, Erwin Fabian was deported to Australia alongside some 2000 other ‘enemy aliens’. He was a Dunera boy who was interned in Camp 2 at Tatura. He was just 25. Today, he is one of Australia’s most significant modern artists, with a decades-long career as a sculptor and painter.

The Museum is privileged to host this exhibition. The selected artworks span Fabian’s time spent in internment through to more recent years and features artworks never before shown in public.
