This Melbourne Exhibition Explores The Classic Australian Milk Bar

A new Melbourne exhibition is exploring the nostalgic beauty of the Australian milk bar.

Directed by Gorkem Acaroglu, Milk Bars is an interactive piece that will occupy multiple spaces across the entire Mechanics Institute venue. Ten artists and designers will combine visual art, sculpture, music and sound to create a unique yet familiar experience for audiences.

Visitors will revisit a world of mixed lollies, newspapers, fridges, pinball machines and old-school TVs. Distant memories will undoubtedly resurface. After all, everyone has a milk bar story.

Milk Bars runs from Wednesday July 27 to Saturday August 6 (Wednesday to Saturday) at the Mechanics Institute, Brunswick. Further details and tickets are available from Metanoia Theatre.
