Performing Arts – 30 June 1997

30 June 1997, Flinders Street Station, Melbourne

On my way to the Performing Arts Museum at the Melbourne Arts Centre. It is now called the Performing Arts Collection, as the museum, which was established in 1979, no longer has a permanent exhibition space.

Some of the collection is available to view online. Particularly interesting is the almost 7000 photographs that document the history of the performing arts in Melbourne.

I still have the swing-coat I am wearing in this two shot colour photobooth photo. I made it while working at Liberty in London. It is incredibly luxurious, hand-woven Irish boucle wool. It is barely cold enough in Australia to wear very often, but I love it so much and did such a fine job of it, I think I will keep it forever.

Please leave a comment. I'd love to hear from you.
