We are pleased to announce the release of a limited-edition exhibition catalogue for our current exhibition, in collaboration with Arts Centre Melbourne, Objects of Fame: Nellie Melba & Percy Grainger.

This 38-page, full-colour publication includes an introductory overview of the exhibition by curators Heather Gaunt (Grainger Museum) and Margaret Marshall (Arts Centre Melbourne), as well as three scholarly essays on the topic of ‘Fame’. ‘More than 15 Minutes of fame: Curating legacies of limelight’ by Ashley Barnwell, ‘Performative Travel: Celebrity bodies and their baggage’ by Jacqueline Dutton and finally ‘The psychology of fame’ by Simon Kinsella. All three offer a unique insight into the idea of fame in the context of the exhibition.

The Grainger Museum does not regularly publish catalogues for our exhibitions, so this is a fantastic opportunity to add a piece of Grainger Museum history to your own collection.
