Eucalyptusdom – Powerhouse Museum (NSW)
25 June 2021 - 1 May 2022
“From Australia’s pursuit of economic botany in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, to the arts and crafts movement that began around the time of Federation, through to contemporary environmentalism – the Powerhouse Collection reflects changing attitudes towards and understanding of Australia’s iconic gum trees.
Eucalyptusdom is an exhibition of objects from the extensive Powerhouse Collection alongside new commissions by creative practitioners in the fields of design, architecture, film, applied arts, writing and performance. Taking its title from a 1930s text by Edward F Swain, one of Australia’s earliest conservationists, Eucalyptusdom weaves together community-engaged projects, industry partnerships and cross-cultural and intergenerational collaborations exploring how our changing relationship to eucalypts reflects a shifting comprehension of Country and place.”
