FROM 1-29 SEPTEMBER 2019, AN EXHIBITION ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS THAT HAVE ENDED. Breakups are hard. And they can create some poignant shrines and relics.
Reminisce, look through those old boxes of letters, favours, faded flowers and consider donating to the Melbourne pop-up of the Museum of Broken Relationships. The internationally acclaimed, Croatian-born exhibition will make its debut in Melbourne, as part of the Melbourne Writers Festival’s love-themed 2019 program.
For the museum’s Melbourne pop-up, curators (and exes) Olinka Vistica and Drazen Grubisic are pulling together an assortment of local stories and pieces, as well as objects from the exhibition’s permanent collections in Zagreb and Los Angeles. Expect to find symbols of heartbreak, nostalgia and ended relationships — and the captivating stories behind them.
Where: CBD’s No Vacancy Gallery;
When: 1–29 September 2019.
Vistica and Grubisic are collecting Melbourne contributions to add a bit of local heartbreak to the pop-up, which might then go on the road and become part of the Museum’s permanent collection. To donate your item, fill in a contribution form by August 7.
