Curator Conversations – Out of This World: Australia in the Space Age
Sat 15 May at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
From mid-century fashion and flying saucer societies to early satellites and rocket playgrounds … how did the space age capture the imagination of a nation and its people?
Join us to find out the answer to this question and learn more about the dawn of the space age in Australia with National Archives of Australia curator, Catriona Donnelly.
From the 1950s through to the 1970s, Australia was gripped with excitement as humanity made its first forays beyond Earth’s atmosphere. From cutting edge scientific research to architecture, design, television and more, Out of This World explores Australia’s role in the space race.
Out of This World: Australia in the space age is on display at Orange Regional Museum from 15 May to 18 July 2021. A national touring exhibition developed and presented by the National Archives of Australia. Exhibition partner: State Library of South Australia. Exhibition supporters: Australian Government National Collecting Institutions Touring and Outreach Program and Visions of Australia.
