will be an inspiration to all with an interest in gardens, books, and the recent past.
Exploring modernism from the perspective of the Australian garden, author and curator Richard Aitken will chart garden making from World War One until the dawn of environmentalism in the 1960s and 1970s. His lecture will showcase garden design during a turbulent period from pre-war European functionalism to a more relaxed post-war Californian modernism, showing how the garden was a necessary prop for modernism's reality.
A vital journey into our recent past.
Join author and curator Richard Aitken for the complementary public lecture February 18th at 6pm.
