Spanning nine decades, Spectacle showcases how music videos have evolved. The exhibition is supported by talks, screenings and workshops to further students' appreciation of music video as a contemporary art form.

With over 300 clips spanning nine decades, Spectacle follows how the art of the music video has progressed, from clips of 1920s jazz legends through to videos by Madonna, Lady Gaga and other contemporary artists.

Powerful imagery and music surround you as you journey through a labyrinth of interactive installations, sets, immersive environments, original props and costumes.

  Spectacle features the handiwork of some of today's most innovative filmmakers, including Michel Gondry who directed videos for The Chemical Brothers and Daft Punk, Spike Jonze (Björk, Fatboy Slim) and Mark Romanek (Lenny Kravitz, Jay Z).

Key Australian music videos also contribute to the story with clips from a variety of home grown talent, including Temper Trap, Nick Cave and Kylie Minogue.

Videos featured in the show range from the experimental and arthouse to the political and the provocative and include epic productions which cross the boundary into short film. All of them demonstrate that ingenuity is the key to creating the perfect marriage of sound and vision.
