In partnership with the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, ACMI presents an exciting opportunity to be immersed in the worlds of space, science and art.
Hear artists and curators from the Star Voyager
exhibition speak about their work viewing the sun, then be guided to the Melbourne Observatory by an expert from the Astronomical Society of Victoria, who will conduct a demonstration of the photoheliograph and allow audience members to look at the sun.
Panellists include ACMI curators Emma McRae and Sarah Tutton, Darren Bellingham from the Astronomical Society and artists David Haines and Joyce Hinterding, whose work EarthStar, 2009
uses spectacular footage of the solar chromospheres, captured using a Hydrogen-Alpha telescope.
Ticket price includes entry to the Star Voyager
exhibition, the panel talk and the tour of the Observatory at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne.
