  • Talk

Lim’s The Australian Ugliness, like Robin Boyd’s book of the same name, seeks to question who architecture is built by and for. Bringing forward a female, Asian, performative and artistic perspective, The Australian Ugliness seeks to ‘other’ architecture, opening up its spaces, ideas and access to a broader, more diverse audience.

The Australian Ugliness inserts people of colour, ambiguous and ageing bodies into some of the most iconic sites of our ugly-beautiful country. Featuring a panel of practitioners across art, film, design and curation, this talk looks at the intersection between art and architecture, screen and space – and the possibility for representations of a more diverse Australia.
