Express Yourself: Romance Was Born for Kids is an interactive exhibition for children, commissioned for the new, dedicated children's gallery at the National Gallery of Victoria. 

This contemporary project for kids provides the ideal platform for Sydney-based designers Luke Sales and Anna Plunkett to share their whimsical and compelling vision with visitors of all ages. The captivating results provide a fantastical, larger than life environment for participation, play and creativity that blends fashion, art, music and design. 

The exhibition features works from collections past and present and focuses on the trademark collaborations and creative themes that underpin their practice. The project will also draw on the NGV Collection as one of its sources of inspiration.

“The immersive spaces that we have developed will encourage visitors and children particularly to engage with art and design in new and surprising ways," says Anna Plunkett of Romance Was Born.

"We want to encourage visitors to express themselves creatively through the lens of colour, adornment and playful self expression. Children can break conventions and have creative free reign."

A vibrant children’s activity book has also been produced to coincide with the exhibition along with a diverse range of public programs for children and families.

The exhibition runs from 17th October 2014 to 22 March 2015, and entry is free.
