  • Exhibition

Part of an ongoing survey into the oeuvres of European-trained émigré creatives in post-war Victoria, this exhibition turns Glen Eira City Council Gallery into a ‘living’ space, encouraging visitors to engage with never-before-seen artefacts drawn from private collections, including furniture, sculpture and lighting from creators including Schulim Krimper, Ernest Deutsch, Frismag, Rosando Furniture, Jacob Rudowski, Rite-Lite, Sol Shapiro, Dario Zoureff and Karl Duldig.

The curation of the exhibition elaborates on extensive research by independent researcher Jeromie Maver in collaboration with Professor Alan Pert from the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning and was designed and produced by Theo Blankley and Professor Philip Goad of the Australian Centre for Architectural History, Urban and Cultural Heritage (ACAHUCH) at Melbourne School of Design.

The exhibition will run from Friday 6th October to Sunday 12th November. Gallery hours are listed and updated regularly on the Glen Eira Council Gallery website.
