What's On

Mirka Mora is a figure who embodied the spirit of artistic, bohemian and culinary life in Melbourne for decades.

This pop-up display features a small sample of objects that represent her remarkable life as a migrant, artist and Melburnian. Acquired by Museums Victoria from Mirka’s Richmond art studio in March 2019, items on display include an unfinished embroidered artwork, sewing box, art cases and an inscribed copy of the first book Mirka bought in English.

The items provide visitors with insights into Mirka’s personal life as a post-World War II migrant and leader within Melbourne’s artistic community, as well as her artistic practice, influences and personal style.
