I Get It, You Moved To Melbourne

I Get It, You Moved To Melbourne

In this pop-up social museum forming part of the Adelaide Fringe, Adelaide-bred, Melbourne-fled curator Tahney Fosdike scrutinises Adelaide’s brain drain. Presenting an idiosyncratic assemblage of visual art, video, creative writing and historical archives, the museum considers the forces behind people leaving Adelaide to pursue a new life in Melbourne and never looking back. Is the grass really greener on the other side?

Featuring John Firth, Jenny Allnut, Grace Harper, Julia Derwas, Chelsea Birrane, Alexandra Dobson, Will Preece, Amalia Krueger and Angus Hamra.

With special thanks to Adelaide Fringe, Jeffrey Firth, University of Melbourne Archives, State Library of South Australia, National Library of Australia, History Trust of South Australia and the Lion Hotel.
