ELISION Ensemble has led the international dissemination of Australian contemporary classical music work and ideas over the past 30 years.

From the Paris Opera House, to Kings Place London, to the Fomenko Theatre Moscow, ELISION has re-invented performance practice and musical form.

Through films, recordings, press, posters, sketches and drawings, this exhibition celebrates thirty years of contemporary practice and ELISION’s involvement with artists such as theatre directors Barrie Kosky, Michael Kantor, writers Allison Croggon, Beth Yahp, visual and new media artists Justine Cooper, Heri Dono, Judy Watson, Per Inge Bjørlo, Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook, Ensembles Modern and CIKADA, and composers Liza Lim, Brian Ferneyhough, Richard Barrett, Aldo Clementi, Franco Donatoni, John Rodgers, Aaron Cassidy, Dmitri Kourliandski, Turgut Ercetin, Timothy McCormack, Matthew Sergeant, and Luke Paulding amongst others.

This project is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
