Bookings essential - free

This free program will be delivered using Zoom.

Australian Love Stories explores love, affection and connection in all its guises. From the enduring to the forbidden, romantic to platonic, the unrequited, obsessive, scandalous or creative.

Join curators Joanna Gilmour & Sandra Bruce for a sneak peek at our exciting new exhibition.

The Australian Love Stories exhibition accompanies Australian Love Stories Online, the interactive amorous adventure launched in August 2020.

Make a booking and the Gallery will email you details on how to connect with us using Zoom.
