Carlton property owners are in the perfect location to access a range of exciting cultural offerings, and the latest exhibition at the City Gallery will have them jetting along to nearby Swanston Street for a historical lesson in aviation.
Jet Set Melbourne is a thrilling new exhibition at Town Hall's City Gallery, exploring the background of Tullamarine airport.
The exhibition uncovers how this airport "opened Melbourne up to the world," according to a February 14 statement from the City of Melbourne.
Those with real estate in Carlton are just a hop, skip and a jump away from from City Gallery, and the suburb is incredibly popular for its locality to other fantastic central city facilities.
Jet Set Melbourne has been curated by Simon Gregg, a historian and former senior curator of Melbourne's City Museum, who aims to transport viewers back to the 1970s with the exhibition.
It was in this decade that Tullamarine airport started allowing international arrivals onto its tarmac.
The exhibition embraces a range of mediums, from contemporary art to objects and photographs.
"The opening of Tullamarine signifies a time in Melbourne when the past and future overlapped. It permitted the hopes and dreams of Melburnians to take flight, giving them a sense of connectedness to the rest of the world," noted Mr Gregg.
Carlton residents should check out this fantastic exhibit before it flies out the door!
