Keynote speaker: Ralp Rugoff – Director, Hayward Gallery, London
Driven by an ever-increasing demand for destination architecture, art galleries and museums are becoming the visual playground for architects and designers the world over. From Gehry’s Guggenheim in Bilbao, 1997 to the much anticipated Diller Scofidio + Renfro designed The Broad in Los Angeles, 2014, the architecture of our museums shape our city.
For architects, interior designers and interior architects the scope is enormous and far more interesting than the once ubiquitous white cube.
To celebrate, explore and discuss current international and local trends, in.site (an interdisciplinary research group) has created a two day symposium featuring leaders in the field of architecture and art display/curation.
Among these luminaries are James Pearce (Fender Katsalidis), Richard Francis-Jones (Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp), Susan Freeman (Freeman Ryan Design), Lindsay Clare (Clare Design), Adrian Spinks and Nicole Durling (MONA), Dr Michael Brand (Director AGNSW) and Dr Tara McDowell (Associate Professor & Director of Curatorial Practice, Monash University).
Registration for this exceptional symposium is now open.
