EXHIBITIONS / The Box in the Corner

​​​​​17 November - 17 March 2019


Mann-Tatlow​ Gallery


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 our popular culture history. We remember the hit shows and household names that kept us 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 our national discourse. Curated by Nigel Giles. #OzTV20C
