GRAINGER | GRIFFINS
Curated and devised by JONATHAN MILLS
Take one of music’s most brilliant and eccentric revolutionaries. Take two architects who reinvented space itself. Now watch as genius is multiplied.
Pianist and composer Percy Grainger’s radical imagination was never limited by musical convention, and the percussive shockwaves he set in effect are still felt today. Architects Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin’s visions of the built environment were just as far-seeing, and exploded the possibilities of urban design. What happens when these three mavericks collide?
In a campus-wide program featuring some of the University of Melbourne’s most iconic historical sites and state-of-the-art technologies that can only be found at Australia’s premier university, Cultural Collisions will open portals into the worlds envisioned by these three remarkable minds. Alternately weird and wondrous, inventive and awe-inspiring, it’s a program that could never be repeated elsewhere.
