Melbourne Out Loud: Life through the lens of Rennie Ellis

Take a trip to the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s and relive Melbourne's culture, fashion and nightlife through the lens of iconic photographer Rennie Ellis.

The exhibition features 450 candid shots of celebrities, socialites, sporting events, cultural gatherings and street life, displayed as large-scale projections, set to a fabulous retro soundtrack created by DJ MzRizk.

From BMX Bandits and shirtless crowds at an ‘80s Boxing Day Test, to the fashion and nightlife of ‘90s Chapel Street and bronzed Aussies soaking up the sun at Middle Park, Melbourne Out Loud captures the carefree and creative spirit of Melbourne from times gone by.

Rennie had an uncanny ability to slip into all kinds of social circles and his photographs are the ultimate story of life on the town. Musicians like John Farnham, Olivia Newton-John, Tina Turner, The Rolling Stones, Nick Cave, and Lou Reed also feature. However, it is the ordinary people of Melbourne who are the real stars of the show.

DIRT - 2021

A casualty of the 2021 Victoria Lockdown, Wil King (ABC/Netflix's Why Are You Like This, Strangers in Between) and their real-life partner, award-winner Patrick Livesey (The Boy, George, Gone Girls) now finally bring Melbourne audiences Angus Cameron’s gripping new work; DIRT. 

Directed by Bronwen Coleman (The Actors Studio, NYC), DIRT is a thrilling and seductive exploration of sexuality, solidarity, and persecution. A multi-award-winning production, it scooped four awards at the 2021 Adelaide Fringe Festival, two at the 2022 Fringe World, was nominated for Best Independent Production by The Adelaide Critics Circle Awards and has earned over a dozen five-star reviews.

Traversing the compelling course of one night, DIRT presents as a simple meet-cute - but all is not as it seems. When a Russian and an Australian walk into a bar in modern-day Moscow, they decide to drink and party together - but both need something from the other, and both have something to hide.

TAKE BACK - 2021

It’s on your streets. It’s on your screens. It’s a group of women, femmes and gender diverse artists of colour speaking back to the racist patriarchal nonsense they experience with fire, wit and imagination.

This is TAKEBACK!, a new multi-platform arts project examining and dismantling the racialised gaze.

Presented by MAV in collaboration with Darebin FUSE Festival, TAKEBACK! brings performers, visual artists, writers, theatre-makers, cabaret stars, poets, lyricists, videographers and filmmakers together to create a fierce, full-bodied response to the everyday aggression of patriarchy and white supremacy.

Presented in March 2021 with both live performances and digital content.
