Flash! An exhibition showcasing the Arts Centre Melbourne’s collection of photographs from the performing arts
Studio Alto was approached by the Arts Centre Melbourne for the design and art direction of Flash!, an exhibition produced to showcase the Centre’s extensive collection of photography of the performing arts spanning over 50 years. The challenge of the task was to accommodate over 200 photographs in close proximity within the exhibition space, yet still have enough room to section them thematically; part of the brief was also to make the exhibition child-friendly.
We employed the use of four bold colours throughout the space to demarcate sections; these colours also served well as highlight panels for children to interact with. Typography was informed from neon signage and movie titles, accentuated by acrylic 3D lettering.
