Exhibition Dates Description Location

Another Vietnam
5 March – 6 June
There are at least two sides to every story, even in the midst of war.

Another Vietnam, an exhibition organised in association with National Geographic Society and supplemented by a locally curated exhibition, Vietnam - A Kiwi Snapshot, takes viewers behind the battle lines of the 20th century's most controversial conflict.

Seen through the lenses of previously unknown North Vietnamese photographers as well as those of young New Zealanders, both photographic exhibitions capture two perspectives; the more familiar western one, and that of the Vietcong and the war they still call the 'American War'.
A mixture of documentary photography and propaganda, Another Vietnam puts a human face to a faceless enemy, acknowledging the impact of this war on both young New Zealanders and the people they were fighting.
Special Exhibition Hall 1.
