The Blade: Australia’s love affair with lawn

Exhibition and Shows

21 Nov 2020 to 20 Feb 2021 Daily Event

Australians love grass; kicking a footy, running under a sprinkler, having a barbeque in the backyard and spending time in the garden. Cultivating a perfect lawn – a status symbol to which all could aspire – required a commitment of time, money and focus. Millions of Australians rose to the challenge. CMAG’s new travelling exhibition, The Blade: Australia’s love affair with lawn, charts the history, tools and stories behind this passion.

Curated by Richard Heathcote, in conjunction with the Australian Garden History Society, the exhibition explores the history of lawn, from Indigenous land management practices through to modern gardening and lawn innovations. Come and discover why we continue to love ‘the green’.
