Art + Architecture 11

Home – Real and Ideal. A new exhibition, conceptualised by Piero Chiefa, opens at the Boutwell Draper Gallery in Sydney.

Starting today 10 February, 19 Architects and 19 Artists will exhibit works at the Boutwell Draper Gallery, continuing a tradition of bringing the professions together in this exciting gallery space.

architect is to present two works,” says James Draper, “one being a
real home – one that is to be constructed or under construction or one
that has been recently finished – and one being their ideal home.”


representations will be everything from sketches, drawings and
photographs to models or house sites. Alongside these works, Boutwell
Draper has curated a selection of artworks, which complement – whether
in concept, colour, shape or theme – the works of the Architects.



exhibition features some of Sydney’s most respected Architects –
including Peter Stutchbury, Luigi Rosselli and L-a-v-a – and Artists –
such as Catherine O’Donnell, David Palliser and William MacKinnon.

love this continued commitment by the gallery to nurturing the ‘art of
architecture’ with their yearly standout exhibitions working with
architects. So if you’re in Sydney, we can definitely recommend you get
along before the exhibition ends on 26 February.
