Travelling exhibitions

Powerhouse Museum travelling exhibitions are designed for a range of venues and audiences including galleries, museums, libraries and small local venues. Exhibition packages generally include the display and also promotional and educational material. In many cases, Powerhouse staff can assist with installation, opening, publicising and dismantling of the exhibition. The level of security, climate control and size of venue required by each show varies and is assessed by a facilities report.

Australian Muslim women dress in diverse styles and are increasingly choosing to engage with global fashion trends while also expressing their faith. Faith, fashion, fusion explores Australia’s emerging modest fashion market and the work of a new generation of fashion designers, retailers and bloggers offering stylish clothing and fashion advice to Muslim women.
Faith, fashion and Muslim identity are further explored through the experiences and achievements of a group of Australian Muslim women. Their stories reflect on the diversity of the Muslim community and the importance of the Muslim faith in all aspects of their lives. more..

Trainspotting: the Powerhouse Museum Photo Competition 2012

Trainspotting: the Powerhouse Museum Photo Competition 2012
An exhibition featuring 54 photographs, comprising the winners and highly commended entries, from this year’s International Trainspotting Photographic Competition. 

Now in its third year, the international competition celebrates the railway industry and the Museum’s extensive rail and steam collection. 

It offers cash prizes across six categories including Steam trains; Diesel electric or electric trains or trams; Railway infrastructure; Trainspotting; People in railway; and Mobile phone; along with an overall winner. 

This year’s competition attracted over 3,600 entries from around the world. From casual observers to passionate railway photographers, the impressive range of entries showcased a variety of styles and interests. 

From documenting steam locomotives in motion to works that explore the social experience of train travel, each photograph tells a very unique story about a country’s place in time and its people.
