Modern Living: At Home in South Australia, 1890-1960 – An Exhibition

From efficient kitchens and hygienic surfaces to sun shading and open-plans, the modernisation of the home has a long history. This exhibition examines some of the influences on homes designed for South Australians from the late nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century – from workers cottages to architect-designed Modernist show homes. Architectural drawings, photographs, books, posters and pamphlets from the collections of the Architecture Museum will be used to uncover some of the ways in which our domestic lives have been shaped by the homes we inhabit. Curated by Dr Julie Collins from the Architecture Museum, University of South Australia.

Presented by Architecture Museum, University of South Australia, The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre


Wed 5 May to Fri 28 May: Mon to Fri 9am-5pm (Thu until 6pm)


The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre’s Kerry Packer Civic Gallery, Hawke Building Level 3, University of South Australia, City West campus, UniSA, 55 North Tce, Adelaide
