Join Melbourne Forum members and their guests on this exclusive tour of Justin Art House Museum.

JAHM is an initiative of Charles and Leah Justin, who are passionate collectors of contemporary art. Through their house museum experience they love to share both their collection and their passion for art, architecture, design and food with the public, and build a sense of community in the process.

The 2109 exhibition, Let There Be Light, reflects how artists regard light as a fundamental element in their creative process. This exhibition presents works from the JAHM collection that will enable you to experience the many elements of light used in the creation of the artworks exhibited in this immersive show.

JAHM is designed as a 3 level building and comprises a dedicated gallery space at first floor level and residence at second floor level, designed specifically to display art. Designed by Elisa Justin (with a little interference by her client architect father) the building has a high 7+ star environmental rating.

The visit includes a tour of the exhibition conducted by our hosts, after which we are invited to their apartment for refreshments, and to enjoy a conversation about the exhibition, art collecting or whatever is of interest.

Their apartment can only fit so many people, my recommendation is to book quickly to avoid missing out!
