Grainger Museum exhibitions announced for 2018

The Grainger Museum announced its 2018 temporary exhibitions program at an event recently held for members and  supporters. Two exhibitions, Synthesizers: Sound of the Future and Objects of Fame: Nellie Melba and Percy Grainger, will complement the permanent displays of the Museum over the course of the year. The Museum will be collaborating closely with external organisations for both exhibitions, including the Arts Centre Melbourne and the Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio.

In addition to the  physical exhibitions, the Grainger is collaborating with Arts West, Faculty of Arts, the Faculty of VCA and MCM, and the Singapore National Museum, to present a digital exhibition project, to be shown in Arts West Digital Studio and Singapore National Museum’s Gallery 10. The exhibition explores the creative possibilities in the digital world of a selection of Percy Grainger’s towel clothes and a selection of Chinese theatre costume from Singapore, and will be presented across multiple venues in mid-2018.
