Melbourne Modern: European art and design at RMIT since 1945
In the wake of World War II hundreds of exiled and displaced European artists, architects and designers arrived in Melbourne and sought employment with RMIT. Melbourne Modern traces a legacy of European intervention and interdisciplinarity through successive generations of RMIT teachers and students to the present day.
Curated by Jane Eckett and Harriet Edquist, Melbourne Moderns is a free event and current at RMIT Gallery on Swanston Street in Melbourne until Saturday 17 August 2019.
