What do Kate Moss, Brigitte Bardot, Amy Winehouse and Queen Elizabeth II have in common? They are all subjects of a recently launched Iconic Women exhibition with a twist, housed at Melbourne Central.
The FREE exhibition includes a series of 50 candid photographs taken from the archives of renowned British photographer, Terry O'Neill , featuring leading females from diverse fields, including fashion, politics, screen, sports, music and art - creatively displayed as a montage of distinctive works of art.
Visitors can expect to see a celebration of femininity and playfulness, with artistic touches by local female artists George Rose , Justine McAllister , Lauren Carney and Samantha Darling , profoundly embellishing some of the most recognised photographs of our time in their trademark abstract, contemporary and pop-art styles.
In partnership with Iconic Images, the immersive black and white exhibition curated by Eddie Zammit with supporting merchandise produced by Radio Velvet, takes over the floors, walls and staircases behind the Shot Tower at Melbourne Central.
Melbourne Central's Regional General Manager, Leigh Dunn, is delighted to bring this exhibition to the public.
"The legendary Terry O'Neill helped pioneer the concept of celebrity culture and women of influence. We are proud to offer a program of educational and cultural significance, shining light on local female artists and hopefully inspiring conversations around female empowerment, creativity and acceptance amongst shoppers and visitors to the precinct."
The Iconic Women exhibition is on display until Sunday 26 May. The entry is FREE so head down today and get inspired by some of the leading women of our lifetime!
