Event description

Description

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: European art & design at RMIT since 1945 traces a legacy of European intervention and interdisciplinarity through successive generations of RMIT teachers and students to the present day.
