ACMI presents the World Premiere of WONDERLAND
07 Apr 2018
ACMI invites you to journey down the rabbit hole into Wonderland, where expectations are upended and curiosity is rewarded. Premiering as part of the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces series, Wonderland celebrates more than a century of Lewis Carroll’s timeless stories on screen in an entirely original experiential exhibition.
From the earliest optical toys to silent film, animation, live action, CGI and beyond, Wonderland takes audiences on Alice’s iconic journey through popular culture, demonstrating how artists, filmmakers and fans have returned to her story with the help of screen technologies for over a century.
With your own interactive Lost Map of Wonderland in hand, explore the Hallway of Doors, play at the Queen’s Croquet-Ground and take part in a magical Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. Along the way you will encounter more than 300 unique objects sourced from around the world including first edition publications and illustrations, animation cells, spectacular costumes, props and more.
Made in Melbourne by the expert team at ACMI, Wonderland is an interactive exhibition full of playful environments and bespoke digital activities created together with a leading team of Australian collaborators.
ACMI’s Wonderland is now open until 7 October 2018. Tickets and information at acmi.net.au/wonderland
