On Reflection: 30 Years of Exhibitions at the Jewish Museum of Australia

Opened: 19 August 2012
Closed: 18 November 2012

On Reflection profiled 30 exhibitions from the almost 100 major exhibitions produced at the Museum. Each is represented by an object featured in the original display, and which comes from the Museum’s own permanent collection. These profiled exhibitions bring to light the themes and subjects that have captivated our curators, designers, artists and volunteer committees, and that have also so successfully captured the imaginations of our audiences.

Ranging across contemporary art, archaeology, social history, Jewish culture and ritual, photography, Judaica, and interactive experiences for children and families, these special exhibitions have reflected and responded to the community and have provided opportunities for visitors of all backgrounds to share in our culture; engaging with and examining what it means to be Jewish in an Australian and global context.
