Max’s Modernism: Sydney CBD

Free tour

5 May 2018


As part of the Australian Heritage Festival 2018, why not join Emma McGirr, GML Heritage Consultant, on a walking tour in Sydney’s CBD. Come along and see the city through the photographs of Max Dupain AC OBE (22 April 1911 to 27 July 1992).

Through Dupain’s photographic eyes, you’ll experience his creative expression and come to understand his connection to architecture in the context of a changing city. The walk will move through central Sydney encompassing notable twentieth century buildings and conclude at the State Library of NSW for a special viewing of photographic prints held in the library’s collection.

Participants will be encouraged to consider Dupain’s life and work in the context of modernity and urban development in the post war period. Photos will be shared on Instagram #maxsmodernism.
