"When the World's Fair came to South Australia..."
Adelaide's Jubilee International Exhibition 1887
'International exhibitions’ celebrated the works of human minds and hands. Adelaide’s commemorated the 50th anniversary of the settlement of South Australia, and honoured the 50th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s accession. For both reasons it involved a riot of patriotism/imperialism and was riddled throughout with the pomp and jingoism of the period. The purpose-built building, the six-month exhibition itself, and the uses and fate of the building complete this collective memory of a now-absent building.
A collaboration between the Architecture Museum, School of Art, Architecture and Design, University of South Australia, the Professional Historians Association (SA), History SA and Crossing Press, Sydney.
