The Box in the Corner

10:00am to 5:00pm Thursday 21 February 2019 (Daily event)

An exhibition celebrating Australian television of the 20th century from its inception in 1956 to 1999. Prior to the digital age of flat screens, portable devices and on-demand viewing, television in Australia was from a simpler, yet formative era in their popular culture history. They remember the hit shows and household names that kept them entertained as well as some of the flops and forgotten gems.

Featuring costumes, props, footage, production stills, documentation and other memorabilia, The Box in the
Corner covers a range of genres including kids, comedy and variety to soap opera, mini-series, game shows and
more and highlights the ways in which television moved beyond the screen to permeate the lives of viewers and
influence the national discourse. Curated by Nigel Giles.
