The Big Day
This week is a busy one on my calendar for exhibitions. It saw the opening of the State Library of Queensland exhibition, Hot Modernism: Building Modern Queensland 1945-75, which I helped curate. Go along and have a look at a recreation of the Jacobi House, a 1957 house from Indooroopilly designed by Brisbane architects Hayes and Scott. There’s plans, drawings, photographs, models, mid-century furniture and more. This was a significant period in Queensland’s history: new ideas were being tested out, people were making extraordinary buildings. Have a look; it’s open till October.
This video by Dean Saffron gives an overview of what was known as the SGIO Building, designed by Conrad and Gargett.
I thought organising one exhibition this week wasn’t quite enough, so I’ve arranged a display of some very special photographs. I’ve worked with Andy Rogers (aka Fame and Spear) a few times previously, documenting the work environments of Ewen Gellie and Daryl Perkins.
In 2013, Andy followed the National Cyclocross Series (NCXS) in Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide, capturing the race action. He has made a selection of prints to be show for the very first time: these haven’t even been on the internet, they’re that fresh.
So if you like photography, if you like cyclocross, or if you like both, be sure to check them out within the clubhouse on Sunday.
