Kylie on Stage

Latrobe Regional Gallery presents a touring exhibition by Arts Centre Melbourne and the Australian Music Vault.
“Kylie on Stage” is a major exhibition celebrating magical moments from Kylie Minogue’s highly successful concert tours.
Drawn from Kylie’s spectacular stage wardrobe held at Arts Centre Melbourne’s Australian Performing Arts Collection, the exhibition features costumes from tours dating back to 1989 as well as more recent tours such as “Kylie Aphrodite les Follies” in 2011. Featured designers within the world-first exhibition include Dolce and Gabbana, John Galliano, Julien Macdonald, Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier, as well as local designers including Peter Morrissey and Mark Burnett.
Tours featured in the exhibition include ‘Disco in Dreams’ (1989); ‘Enjoy Yourself’ (1990); ‘Rhythm of Love’ (1991); ‘Let’s Get to It’ (1991); ‘Intimate and Live’ (1998); ‘On A Night Like This’ (2001); ‘Kylie Fever’ (2003); ‘Kylie Showgirl’ (2005); ‘Kylie Homecoming’ (2006); ‘Kylie X2008’ (2008); ‘Kylie Aphrodite les Follies’ (2011) and ‘Kylie Kiss Me Once’ (2015).
“Touring and live performance have been such a big part of my life and my development as an artist, so I’m thrilled that Arts Centre Melbourne is staging this free national exhibition. I’m excited for fans to get up close and personal with my costumes and to get a glimpse behind the curtain to see some of the design process.” - Kylie Minogue.
Latrobe City Council’s Mayor, Councillor Darrell White OAM, said this was a huge coup for Latrobe City and the exhibition, at Latrobe Regional Gallery, would appeal to a broad cross-section of the community.
“The recent Gallery redevelopment has afforded us the capacity to host major exhibitions like ‘Kylie on Stage’. There’s a real buzz of anticipation in the community not just for the exhibition itself, but for the sense of fun it will bring to our region. The very nature of the exhibition will allow visitors a kind of backstage pass into the world of one of Australia’s most recognisable music icons.
Coupled with the community activities that will be on offer, this exhibition definitely has the ‘wow’ factor,” Councillor White said.
The exhibition has been made possible through a large donation by Kylie to Arts Centre Melbourne’s Australian Performing Arts Collection, the nation’s leading specialist collection documenting Australia’s circus, dance, music, opera and theatre heritage.
The exhibition is approached chronologically with themed areas that reflect the development of Kylie’s stage persona throughout her career. ‘Kylie on Stage’ also features a selection of designs, working drawings, photographs and footage that explore the creative process behind each costume and provide rare glimpses into the world backstage.
