Curiouser and curioser….. down the rabbit hole we go in ACMI’s 2018 Melbourne Winter Masterpiece’s Exhibition, WONDERLAND. Celebrating the weird and wonderful creations of author Lewis Carroll’s timeless and inspired stories, the exhibition pays homage to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There, in an entirely fresh and experiential exhibition that focuses on film’s adaptations of Carroll’s tales.
