Albert and Barbara Tucker Gallery, Heide Museum of Modern Art

Curator: Kendrah Morgan

When the Japanese bombed Darwin on 19 February 1942 Australians had to face the arrival of World War II on their doorstep. Life in Melbourne changed almost overnight, with ‘brownout’ conditions, restrictions on daily activities, the influx of 30,000 American troops, and army conscription for all able-bodied young men — including Albert Tucker and most of the artists supported by John and Sunday Reed at Heide.
