Museum Victoria is currently working on the redevelopment of Bunjilaka, the museum’s Aboriginal Cultural Centre, with a new exhibition titled First Peoples, which will be opening in mid 2013.
Emma Hutchinson, Image Management and Copyright Officer of Bunjilaka Redevelopment Project at Museum Victoria contacted me this week to inform that the museum's curatorial team were interested in using my Point Lonsdale image for use in multimedia projection within the First Peoples exhibition. Emma said that the multimedia projection will contain up to 50 landscape images depicting Victorian country.
So, as a proud Melburnian with that exciting offer in front of me, I gladly accepted the opportunity to support the museum for its new project.
Currently, I have an image of the Melbourne city skyline featured in a digital projected display as part of The Melbourne Story exhibition at the museum, which is running from 2008-2018.
The First Peoples exhibition will be a permanent gallery at the Melbourne Museum and it will be on display for 10 years. I feel honoured to be involved, and encourage people to visit the museum when the exhibition opens.
