Love is a many splendored thing. Love lifts us up where we belong. All you need is love! And now, Love at the Immigration Museum will be open late on Thursday nights.

Now in its final month, the inclusive exhibition will be open until 7pm. As well as a Love bar (drink for love!) and the sounds of all-Australian love songs (dance for love!), visitors will get a first look at a display of recently-acquired objects from Mirka Mora’s collection. Senior Curator of Migration and Diversity Dr Moya McFadzen spoke to the significance of these items which ‘…provide insights into Mirka’s personal life as a post-World War II migrant and leader within Melbourne’s artistic community’.

Developed in partnership with Heide Museum of Modern Art, the ambitious exhibition seeks to crack open the beating heart of love in its different forms and all its messy, beautiful glory. Combining visual art, historical and contemporary artefacts, and personal reflections from the community, Love is at once inspiring, uplifting, devastating and heartbreaking.
