Revolutions: Records + Rebels Opening Night
Ex Ponto

Psychedelic, liquid light show projections delivered through a modern lens for the opening of Melbourne Museum’s Revolutions: Records+Rebels exhibition.

Originating from the world’s leading museum of art and design, Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London, Revolutions: Records and Rebels investigates the way youth culture and collective action catalysed seismic shifts in the Western world across five revolutionary years: 1966–70.

More than 500 objects from the V&A and Museums Victoria’s own collection alongside significant international loans took visitors on an immersive ride through the events, music, voices and technological advancements that defined the cultural and political vanguard of the period – from the fashion, art and pop-scene of Swinging London, to anti-Vietnam War protests, to the fight for civil rights and recognition of Australia’s First Peoples in the 1967 referendum, to communal moments such as Woodstock and Sunbury.
