Beauty Rich and Rare
Originally created for the National Library of Australia, is a stunning contemporary interpretation of Sir Joseph Banks’ exploration of Australia’s natural history. From the moment they enter, visitors are enveloped in Beauty, Rich and Rare. In a darkened room, the breathtaking images unfold on a five-panel screen measuring 20 by 2.5 metres*; surrounding the audience in its 180-degrees. The visual storyline is narrated by renowned Australian personality Angela Catterns. Using modern digital techniques to interpret real artefacts from the collection, Beauty Rich & Rare captures the imagination of the audience; the show helps them to experience the same wonder that the HMB Endeavour’s passengers and crew once felt on their historic journey. Visitors of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds will be inspired by the extraordinary accomplishments of these courageous people from the Age of Enlightenment, whose curiosity and daring took them to Australia 250 years ago. *the exhibition can be adapted to fit additional sized screens
- Natural History
A story of French fascination with Australia’s most treasured natural resources. Josephine’s Garden is an immersive sound and light experience with a curated narrative that uses visual storytelling to share a little known story about Joséphine de Beauharnais and the garden she established at Château de Malmaison containing plants and animals from Australia. This exhibition documents the extraordinary plant and animal life found in Australia and the amazing tales of transporting kangaroos, emu’s and black swans across the globe and into the garden of Empress Josephine, wife of Napoleon Bonaparte. It is a story told from a little known perspective and one that has left an indelible mark on both countries.

AGB Events worked with the Australian Museum to produce a compelling creative content piece which was projected onto the northern facade of the Sydney building, coinciding with the launch of their SHARKS exhibition in September 2022.
Sitting approx 20m wide x 17m high, this impactful projection showcased assets of the Museum’s SHARKS exhibition in an artistic vision, bringing history to life in a modern way.

AGB Events was originally engaged to project a series of images and animation of the 200 treasures of the Australian Museum onto the external façade of the historic institution.
The effect was stunning and the Australian Museum decided to extend the treatment to the internal Long Gallery to help engage audiences.
To showcase the 200 Treasures and story of the Westpac Long Gallery, AGB Events worked within the confines of the heritage interior to create a unique solution that used the floor as a projection surface of the Westpac Long Gallery. AGB’s Digital team animated the Australian Museum’s collection onto this unique canvas, creating a narrative of associations throughout the assets.
The Gallery was transformed from a traditional exhibition space to a dynamic immersive experience for visitors.
