This exhibition coincides with the International Association for the Study of Popular Music – Australian New Zealand Branch Conference at the Australian National University, School of Music, 4 – 6 December.

Artist, Peter Maloney, first saw Wendy Saddington perform in Canberra when he was around 17 years of age. He became a lifelong admirer and then friend of the singer and amassed an extensive personal archive of material relating to this iconic Australian performer. Using material from Maloney’s archive, the exhibition follows the development of Saddington’s career as a cult celebrity and a key figure in Australian popular music history.
