Visitors of all ages are creating their own exhibitions these school holidays, as they interact with moveable plinths, frames and faux-collection objects at La Trobe Art Institute.

This fun hands-on program unveils the mechanics of managing and displaying collections in response to La Trobe University's milestone exhibition Revealing Identity at Bendigo Art Gallery.

Visitors are exploring the creative process behind curating and titling their own show as they select and arrange an assortment of two and three-dimensional objects.

Through playful interaction, they discover the careful planning and consideration required in exhibition development.

After installing, our budding curators are encouraged to insert their exhibition title on the entrance wall to the gallery and celebrate their debut exhibition.

'______ [INSERT TITLE]' will be open at LAI, 121 View Street, Bendigo, until Sunday 6 August 2017.
