Cafe Dreaming

An Exhibition from the “In Their Own Image: Greek Australians” Project in partnership with the Australian History Museum, Macquarie University

Style was an essential element of Australia’s Greek cafés and milk bars. Both their exteriors and interiors, from the 1930s to the 1960s, expressed the glamour and allure of America – dazzling Art Deco streamlined and reflective surfaces, multi-coloured etched mirrors, badged silver-plated and ceramic tableware, flashing neon lights, gleaming soda fountain counters, exotic marble-topped tables or highly-polished wooden booths, with waiting staff in stylish uniforms that matched the interior décor. A new world of visual delight provided Australians with a taste of the American Dream – the fantasy of a life-style that was better, richer, fuller. This object-based exhibition provides an insight into this lost world.

Monday 16 April – Wednesday 30 May

Mon-Fri: 8am – 10pm; Sat-Sun: 10am – 6pm

Official Launch: Monday 16 April, 11am

Impressions of Greece

A journey through the photographic archives of William Woodhouse

The Nicholson Museum holds over 1500 glass-plate negatives of Greece taken by William Woodhouse,  Professor of Classics and Nicholson Museum curator at the University of Sydney in the 1890s and early 1900s. Woodhouse's photographs captured landscapes, archaeological sites, villages, monasteries, festivals and daily life in mainland Greece.

In this free talk Nicholson Museum curator Candace Richards will present the museum’s citizen archiving Flickr project which is seeking public help in identifying and describing the images. The talk will explore the richness of the photographs as a documentary resource, and we will learn more about Woodhouse’s life, his teaching and his love of Greece.

Silent Path05

A series of three short documentaries shot in Lesvos by Tzeli Hadjidimitriou, during the financial and migrant crisis:

Salt and Bread introduces us to the people of a neighborhood, an ouzo distillery and a boatbuilder. What they all have in common is their love for what they do.

Grannies presents four women of Lesvos, aging but strong in spirit, grounded in the soil and history of the island, recalling life with humour and wisdom.

Routvas is a remote shepherds’ family settlement in the mountains, next to a Christian chapel with ancient Greek columns, where they spend the summer with their flock of sheep.
