Cultivating modernism: reading the modern garden 1917-71

17 February – 31 March 2014

Exhibition at Kerry Packer Civic Gallery, Hawke Building, City West campus, University of South Australia

Cultivating Modernism comes alive at the Kerry Packer Civic Gallery through a kaleidoscopic mix from rarely seen books, prints, and ephemera charting garden making during a turbulent period from pre-war European functionalism to a more relaxed post-war Californian modern. A vital journey into our recent past.
