Powerhouse Late: A Line A Web A World

Location marker iconUltimoTime icon2023

Join us for a night of illustration and drawing to celebrate A Line A Web A WorldInternal link icon. The exhibition comprises more than 230 drawings from the Powerhouse Collection and traverses thousands of years of documented drawing practices.

The night will feature a magic lantern performance, the launch of Drawing Club, curator-led tours of the exhibition and visuals accompanied by a DJ.

Drawing Club offers free drop-in sessions for anyone who loves to draw and is keen to learn different drawing techniques. Sessions inspired by the exhibition will be led by Studio A on the night.

Magic lantern performances featuring Martyn Jolly, Charles Martin and Anna Madeleine Raupach will take you on a phantasmagoric journey as they recreate a 19th century magic lantern. Inspired by the Powerhouse Collection and Sydney Observatory, these unique performances give movement to original hand-painted magic slides projected through a 130-year-old brass and mahogany magic lantern.
