Event description
Object Club Evening: The Australian of the Year

About this Event

Join curator Laina Hall, who has worked on curating the Australian of the Year exhibition at the National Museum for four years running, to gain behind the scenes insights and a sense of how this unique exhibition comes together.

This exhibition pays tribute to eight extraordinary Australians chosen as the 2020 state and territory recipients for the Australian of the Year Award. Each recipient was asked to choose an object of personal significance, something that could tell us about their lives, aspirations and experiences. The range of objects is fascinating and reveals the power of material culture to tell stories and make connections.

The talk will be followed by wine and cheese. Exclusive to Museum Friends. Join Friends
