 Hello Yellow 



An exhibition that explores the driver-passenger relationship within Melbourne's taxis in all its richness, variety and colour.

For some people 'taxi' is a four-letter word – while for others it is their livelihood. Mention the word 'taxi' in conversation and you will inspire countless stories about people's experiences.

Making use of the City of Melbourne's Art and Heritage collection, this exhibition celebrates Melbourne as the first city in Australia to introduce the motorised taxicab and traces its extraordinary social history to the present day. The interactions between drivers and passengers shape the way we view and understand our city and society and reveal glimpses into our humanity.

Comprising 3D objects, artwork, photographs and moving image, the exhibition will explore how the driver–passenger relationship has inspired popular culture. An interactive component will invite visitors to step into the shoes of a taxi driver and take the Melbourne Knowledge test.
