Showcasing the hauntingly beautiful collaboration between Del Kathryn Barton and Brendan Fletcher, this milestone exhibition is layered with a stirring score by Sarah Blasko and voiced by some of Australia’s most celebrated actors, including Mia Wasikowska, Geoffrey Rush, and David Wenham.
ACMI’s Del Kathryn Barton: The Nightingale and the Rose will show at the Yarra Ranges Regional Museum from Sat 20 Oct – Sun 3 Feb. Celebrating the extraordinary collaboration between two-time Archibald Prize winner Del Kathryn Barton and acclaimed filmmaker Brendan Fletcher, this exhibition traces the remarkable adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s 19th century classic into a hauntingly beautiful animated film.

This free exhibition transforms the Yarra Ranges Regional Museum space into an immersive and intricate Barton-inspired world: colourful, bold, enchanting, brooding and revealing.

Audiences can view the 14-minute animation within the exhibition space, and then make their way through a lush display of objects and artworks that explore the incredible workings behind this production linking classic text to canvas, sculpture to screen. Also on display, is a selection of stunning and never-before-seen handmade props, material from the animation archival material, and a 1913 edition of Wilde’s anthology.

Yarra Ranges Regional Museum invites you to interact with the exhibition at a number of satellite events including Bubbles and Barton ... a Wilde night at the Museum – Thursday 17 Jan, 6.30pm - 9.30pm. Tickets $20
