Exhibition held at National Museum of Australia from 11 July 2008 to 16 November 2008
Greek cafes in Australia were a "Trojan Horse" for the Americanisation of this nation's eating and social-cultural habits from the very start of the 20th century. They initially introduced American commercial food-catering ideas, technology and products and later influenced the development of cinema and popular music. The Greek cafe helped "transform" Australian popular culture. This nationally touring exhibition not only looks at how this was done, but also the personal stories of those involved. Containing over 120 photographic images, associated extended captions, various 3D objects and a DVD presentation, the exhibition is travel to most capital cities and some regional venues over the next 6 years.
