A Curious Arcade | New Farm

15 September, 2020 - 26 September, 2020

A Curious Arcade | New Farm

These elaborate machines are the creations of virtuosic Australian inventor Celeste Mackellan, an obscure figure who disappeared in 1929 along with the mechanical curiosities she built.

Fascinated by Mackellan’s mysterious disappearance, an international consortium of collectors and creatives from Imaginary Theatre are slowly working to locate, extract and lovingly restore her machines to their former glory.

At A Curious Arcade, you can experience these mechanical wonders as they tell timeless stories that surprise and delight.
