Arts Centre Melbourne’s successful Icon Exhibition AC/DC: Australia’s Family Jewels, presented in partnership with the Western Australian Museum and in association with AC/DC, Albert Music and Sony Music, has just arrived at the second stop on its international tour – EMP Museum in Seattle!
The exhibition opened with a bang last week, and EMP Museum have shared some fantastic photographs of the opening party on their Flickr stream, which you can find here.
AC/DC: Australia’s Family Jewels attracted an incredible 415,000 visitors during its Australian display and is the first and only fully endorsed exhibition to bring to life the history, creativity and power of one of the world’s greatest bands.
The Australian tour, generously funded by Visions Australia, included the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory in Darwin and our touring partners the Western Australian Museum in Perth. WA Museum CEO Alec Coles said the exhibition had been a huge success. “The exhibition has attracted more than 80,000 people to WAM, and what has been great has been the diversity of visitors – this is not just an exhibition for fans – although they, of course, love it – it is for anyone interested in contemporary music and musical culture in Australia.”
