STUDY DAY 2011 | THE GARDEN OF IDEAS 2 : STILL LIFE: Modernist art and the Australian interior with Gloria Strzelecki

Saturday 10 Sep 2011, 11:30 AM – 12:15 PM

Modernism of the early to mid-20th century was often introduced into the domestic setting through works of art, including floral art. Using the collections of Carrick Hill and works of artists who contributed to this rich legacy, domestic modernism is examined through the eyes of such figures as Edward Bawden, Adrian Feint, John Piper, and Stanley Spencer.

Gloria Strzelecki was the guest curator for the major retrospective on Kathleen Sauerbier: A modern pursuit held recently at Carrick Hill in South Australia and is currently gallery manager for Adelaide Central School of Art.

THE GARDEN OF IDEAS: STUDY DAY 2 focusses on the historical use of plants in Australian interiors to coincide with FAIR HALL & GLAD PARLOUR: bringing the garden indoors
