The Story of the Moving Image
School exhibition visit
Monday to Friday during school terms
10am – 2.30pm
Discover how inventors, innovators and artists have used light and shadow, time and movement, colour and sound over time to tell stories and celebrate the wonder of the moving image. Our exhibition acknowledges First Peoples’ ongoing contribution to culture and storytelling, while also foregrounding new perspectives and Australian creativity and innovation.
Each student will receive the Lens, a free take-home device that lets them collect artworks and objects as well as their interactive experiences. Later at home or at school, they can delve deeper into the stories and ideas behind the things they have collected.
