Now on at: The Arts Centre, Melbourne

Today, a new exhibition opens at The Arts Centre in Melbourne. From the Arts Centre website, 'Rock Chicks - An exhibition' takes you backstage via event footage, costumes, instruments, lyrics, sets, posters and sounds to meet the women who kick started, shaped and continue to drive full-speed through the Australian music landscape.

Representing women in girl groups, punk, new wave, pub, hard rock, indie rock and even folk and jazz – this is a curatorial mixed-tape of the most impressive.'

What's really exciting is that featured in this huge exhibition, is Beaches! The photograph I took, above, of Beaches earlier this year is part of the show. I was also lucky enough to have the photograph purchased for the Performing Arts Collection, which is recognised as a State collection, and is the nation's premier specialist performing arts collection relating to the history of circus, dance, music, opera and theatre in Australia.

The exhibition runs from 6 November 2010 until 27 February 2011 in Gallery 1 and Gallery 2 of The Arts Centre complex on St Kilda Rd, Melbourne.
