RELICS: A New World Rises

RELICS: A New World Rises

RELICS: A New World Rises is an immersive new exhibition by Australian LEGO® Masters Jackson Harvey and Alex Towler that explores an imagined future where LEGO® minifigure civilisations have evolved, and now thrive, in discarded vintage treasures.

Set in a time long after humanity’s reign, RELICS: A New World Rises tells the story of a world where LEGO® minifigures have risen from the debris of our civilisation to build their own intricate worlds in forgotten artefacts, each one inspired by the object they now call home
