Melbourne Modern: European art and design at RMIT since 1945

Works from the RMIT Art Collection, RMIT Design Archives and public and private collections come together in ‘Melbourne Modern’ highlighting the influence of European artists, architects and designers who arrived in Melbourne post World War II with their rigorous creative skills and bold philosophical ideas of modernism, many of whom found employment at the then named Melbourne Technical College. The exhibition presents a fascinating examination of the impact these emigré educators had on RMIT teachers and students, then and now.
