About this video

Inspired by our summer 2015 exhibition Bohemian Melbourne, which celebrated a who’s who of local creative free spirits, we took to the streets of Melbourne's CBD to ask what ‘bohemian’ really means.

See what our vox pop interviewees thought. (Rock band Queen, of 'Bohemian Rhapsody' fame, gets more than a few mentions...)
