Art Almanac - - Art In Aus­tralia -

The first day of sum­mer at Mel­bourne’s Im­mi­gra­tion Mu­seum is cel­e­brated with sto­ries of love – a uni­ver­sal con­cept that we em­brace in many ways. ‘Love’ wraps it­self in friend­ship, de­sire, de­vo­tion and ro­mance and nur­tures pain and heartache. From 1 De­cem­ber the Mu­seum morphs into an in­ti­mate sto­ry­telling ‘love seat’ ex­plor­ing ex­pres­sions of love through per­sonal items, shared ex­pe­ri­ences and com­mis­sioned art­works. The au­di­ence is in­vited to wan­der through the space with a dig­i­tal guide ac­com­pa­nied by a mu­si­cal sound­track, mov­ing through to pur­pose-built ‘love shacks’ then leave their own im­pres­sions of love at the Heart Gar­den in­stal­la­tion. Works from the Heide Mu­seum of Mod­ern Art Col­lec­tion, and a sparkling per­for­mance work by The Hux­leys, com­ple­ment the ex­hi­bi­tion. Con­cludes 28 April 2019.
