The Moderns: European Designers in Sydney at Sydney Living Museums

The Moderns: European Designers in Sydney at Museum of Sydney, explores a forgotten aspect of Australian modernism, highlighting the direct connections between Sydney and the European design centres of Vienna, Berlin and Budapest.

This object-rich exhibition tells the stories of Sydney’s émigré architects, interior designers and furniture makers working in the 1930s to 1960s and their impact on the development of modernist design in Sydney.

Discover the vitality of this community, their stories of achievement, loss, adaptation and ingenuity in this celebration of both the richness that migration brings and the diverse history of our city.

This exhibition explores previously forgotten Sydney’s émigré architects, interior designers and furniture makers such as Henry Epstein, Hugh and Eva Buhrich, George Korody, Hugo Stossel and many more.

Details: Saturday 22 July – Sunday 26 November
