Celebrating 60 years of Australia’s most exceptional women, Vogue Australia and the National Portrait Gallery have collaborated to produce a special exhibition, WOMEN IN VOGUE: Celebrating 60 Years.
Opening on 11 October 2019 the dynamic exhibition will showcase 60 years of the Vogue Australia archive, together with a special tribute to some of the remarkable Australian women who have featured in its pages. The show will include iconic portraits of Cate Blanchett, Kylie Minogue and Elle Macpherson, among others.
Vogue Australia editor-in-chief Edwina McCann said: “We are delighted to be collaborating with the Gallery on this very special exhibition. Vogue Australia has been a renowned and trusted source for fashion and beauty in this country for 60 years, something we are very proud of.
“The elegant and contemporary exhibition will draw on our archive and highlight Vogue Australia’s role in documenting the changing roles and diversity of Australian womanhood over two generations. I couldn’t think of a better way to start our 60th-anniversary celebrations.”
The Gallery’s director Karen Quinlan said: “This exhibition will reveal stunning images of some of the nation’s leading cultural exports from the last 60 years, as seen in Vogue.
“Rare examples of archived magazines will be on show, from the early decades of publication through to bold photographs of icons of the 21st century. Here at the home of portraiture, this collaboration will present images of the vibrant, evolving identity of Australian women.”
WOMEN IN VOGUE: Celebrating 60 Years in Australia will be on at the Portrait Gallery from 11 October to 24 November 2019. Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased via the Gallery’s website.
