Ararat Gallery TAMA presents Kylie on Stage, a touring exhibition by Arts Centre Melbourne and the Australian Music Vault from 4 August to 7 October 2018. 

Drawn from Kylie’s spectacular stage wardrobe held at Arts Centre Melbourne’s Australian Performing Arts Collection the exhibition features costumes from tours dating back to 1989 as well as more recent tours such as Kylie Aphrodite les Follies in 2011.

Featured designers within the world-first exhibition include Dolce and Gabbana, John Galliano, Julien Macdonald, Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier as well as local designers including Peter Morrissey and Mark Burnett. 

Kylie on Stage also features a selection of designs, working drawings, photographs and footage that explore the creative process behind each costume and provide rare glimpses into the world backstage. 

“We are so happy that the people of Ararat are going to get the chance to experience this wonderful exhibition and to get up close and personal with Kylie,” Janine Barrand, Director of the Australian Performing Arts Collection at Arts Centre Melbourne said.

Ararat Gallery TAMA Director, Anthony Camm said presenting the exhibition was an exciting way to open the new venue.

"Ararat Gallery has been transformed through a major redevelopment supported by all tiers of government," he said.

"We are thrilled to showcase our new and expanded spaces with the Kylie on Stage exhibition. 

"Given our gallery's strong textile focus, the opportunity to present garments designed for Ms Minogue's stage shows by some of the world's greatest fashion designers is a great honour."

“Touring and live performance has been such a big part of my life and my development as an artist, so I’m thrilled that Arts Centre Melbourne are staging this free national exhibition. I’m excited for fans to get up close and personal with my costumes and to get a glimpse behind the curtain to see some of the design process.” - Kylie Minogue.
