BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

Architecture\, Art and Collaborative Design is a traveling exhibition celebrating the ninetieth anniversary o f the birth of Harry Seidler\, the leading Australian architect of the twen tieth century. The exhibition traces Austrian-born Seidler’s key role in br inging Bauhaus principles to Australia and identifies his distinctive place and hand within and beyond modernist design methodology. The fifteen featu red projects—five houses and five towers in Sydney\, and five major commiss ions beyond Sydney—focus on Seidler’s lifelong creative collaborations\, a pursuit he directly inherited from Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius\, with pr ogressive artistic visionaries: architects Marcel Breuer and Oscar Niemeyer \, engineer Pier Luigi Nervi\, photographer Max Dupain\, and artists Josef Albers\, Alexander Calder\, Norman Carlberg\, Sol LeWitt\, Charles Perry\, Frank Stella\, and Lin Utzon.

\n

The exhibition was developed by curat or Vladimir Belogolovsky of Intercontinental Curatorial Project in New York with Penelope Seidler and Harry Seidler &\; Associates in Sydney and sp onsored by Seidler Architectural Foundation. Seidler’s work is presented th rough architectural models\, sculpture maquettes\, photographs\, films\, co rrespondence\, books\, scrapbooks\, periodicals\, drawings\, and original s ketches—provided by the architect’s family\, Historic Houses Trust of New S outh Wales\, The Josef &\; Anni Albers Foundation\, The Marcel Breuer Di gital Archive at Syracuse University\, and the private archives of artists Norman Carlberg\, Charles Perry\, and Lin Utzon.

Vladimir Belogolovsky: “I would draw attention to two reasons wh y Seidler is important and why he will always be important. First\, it is h is love for architecture\, his position on following his convictions to whi ch he was always true and a mission to make the world a better place where architecture is a big part of it. He was a real crusader and not just for h is own work but for what he believed – whether voicing his support for Jørn Utzon’s Opera House in Sydney or protesting against unfitting addition to Marcel Breuer’s Whitney Museum in New York by Michael Graves. And second\, I think is really important\, particularly today when so many architects ar e entrenched with their ambitions compromised and scaled down. It is the im portance of inspiration. Seidler’s vision was grand and he drew his inspira tion from a multitude of sources – art\, geometry\, history\, and so on. I would particularly stress the importance of art as an endless source of cre ative inspiration for architecture.”
