I've written here about the Incinerator Gallery in Moonee Ponds. I love it. Walter Burley Griffin may have designed Canberra and some pretty classy suburbs, such as Castlecrag in Sydney, but he also left a legacy of huge industrial incinerators proving beyond doubt that this architect could make any building look beautiful.
On Monday, 20 July, 1pm-2.30pm Judith will talk on the topic of Art Deco Art Deco: A Global Perspective
Then on Monday, 21 September, 1pm-2.30pm she will talk about Burley Griffin (who designed the Incinerator Gallery) as well as Frank Lloyd Wright and The Chicago School. Griffin originally worked for Wright in the States and many of his designs have Wright's imprint in the clean lines, natural materials and use of patterning as in nature. I included the photo of his famous house Falling Water (1934) above to tempt you along. The iconic house was partly built over a waterfall.
The last talk brings us up to more modern times with Graffiti, Street Art and Subvertising. This is on Monday, 23 November, 1pm-2.30pm.
All talks are free and even include free tea and coffee but bookings must be made as the audience is capped at 60.
