Callum Preston’s MILK BAR
29 March – 28 April

Callum Preston is a sucker for nostalgia. As a child of the Melbourne suburbs in the 1990s, Preston remembers his neighbourhood milk bar as a place of wonder. For this exhibition Preston recreated his own childhood milk bar completely by hand, one chip packet and Coke can at a time. Like any milk bar, Preston’s is filled with the usual objects: magazines, chocolate bars and cereal boxes. He explores nostalgia and how commodification and shopping has changed.
