Excavating Modernism: Stylistic Species, Émigré Architects and the South-Eastern Suburbs
Glen Eira City Council Gallery Caulfield City Hall Glen Eira & Hawthorn Roads Caulfield VIC 3162
Professor Alan Pert
Director, Melbourne School of Design
Exhibition materials, including archival drawings, documentation, interviews, print media and the creation of a publication and 3D models explore the narratives of the projects of Jewish émigré architects in Glen Eira. Through the employment of historical materials from University-held archives, recently acquired archives, and content sourced from the families of the exhibiting architects, this exhibition generates a dialogue about the role of these typologies in our housing, cultural, historical landscapes. Interspersed with this is work from 2018 Curatorial Practice students, who derive their own understanding and interpretation to provide a contemporary contextualisation to the works.
