The Australian Turf Club Heritage Exhibition

Being given an opportunity to exhibit a sample of the ATC Heritage Collection at a local library we asked Event Planet to design a museum style background to best display the artwork and objects.  What they came up with completely transformed the space, and definitely met the brief. They were very efficient and a delight to work with.

Event Brief

To design and construct an exhibition of The Australian Turf Club’s heritage items including paintings, artefacts and video recordings. To create a setting that was sympathetic to an historical display that was engaging and inviting for visitors.

The Result

Event Planet created a bespoke gallery environment within the Bowen Library at Maroubra. The exhibition consisted of four surrounding walls which featured a combination of both televisions and recessed shelving. The televisions displayed rolling historic film and photographic footage in front of a backdrop of Royal Randwick Racecourse from the mid 1940’s.

Visitors to the exhibition were also treated to an inaugural viewing of artwork and artefacts that reflect Australia’s racing history at a special launch event. The exhibition gave guests the unique opportunity to experience defining moments of the ‘sport of kings’ in Australia.
