Fantastical Worlds

Exhibition
7 August 2018 - January 2020 Powerhouse Museum Book Tickets

The Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences collection holds many objects that instill a sense of wonder. Made using a vast range of materials and techniques, they stimulate our imagination and shed light on how we perceive ourselves and the world.

Comprising playful arrangements of old and new, Fantastical Worlds reveals the creative brilliance behind contemporary and historical designs and highlights new acquisitions from four artists and designers: Timothy Horn, Alexander McQueen, Kate Rohde and Timorous Beasties. Inspired by elaborate European art styles from the past such as Baroque, Rococo and Empire, they imaginatively transform historical ideas and patterns into striking contemporary creations.
