The highly anticipated world premiere of Mandela My Life: The Official Exhibition opens at the Melbourne Museum in September.
A century on from his birth, this exhibition poetically and emotively explores the personal and public life of Nelson Mandela, one of the most influential men in modern history. A rich selection of rare personal artefacts, film footage and documents, combined with newly created audio-visual pieces form the heart of the exhibition and offer an insight into the world that shaped Mandela’s life and journey.
Produced by iEC Exhibitions, TEG Live and Museums Victoria, in full collaboration with The Nelson Mandela Foundation of South Africa as their only official global exhibition, this brand-new, world-class exhibition will exclusively open in Australia before commencing on a five-year worldwide museum tour from 2019.
This exhibition will be a world first, with a rich collection of artifacts, documents and personal items expertly curated to share the story of Mandela’s rich and colourful life.
