Description

ACMI invites you to venture down the rabbit hole into an enchanted world, where expectations are upended and curiosity is rewarded. A world premiere as part of the Victorian Government's Melbourne Winter Masterpieces series, ACMI's newest creation, Wonderland, celebrates the screen history of Lewis Carroll's timeless stories — Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There — in an entirely original experiential exhibition.

The enduring fascination with Carroll's stories and characters uniquely traces the evolution of filmmaking, providing the perfect subject matter for ACMI to illustrate out ongoing fascination with new visual technologies over more than a century. From the earliest optical toys to silent film, animation, puppetry, live-action cinema, videogames, CGI, 3D and beyond, Wonderland explores how the moving image has kept Alice and her stories in the public consciousness, reinvented in contemporary contexts and mediums.

Commencing in Lewis Carroll's drawing room, visitors are handed their own Lost Map of Wonderland, a physical and digital device unlocking surprising experiences during their exhibition journey and beyond. Wander the world of Wonderland, lose yourself in the Hallway of Doors, play at the Queen's Croquet Ground and take part in a magical Mad Hatter's Tea Party that comes to life before your very eyes. Along the way you'll find more than 300 unique objects sourced from all around the world.
