Join the State Library Victoria for a special curatorial floor talk by Exhibitions Curator Eve Sainsbury, exploring the work and legacy of amateur photographer and architectural draftsman, Peter Wille.

Wille amassed a collection of more than 6,000 colour images, capturing a period of experimental design from the austerity measures of post-World War II to the height of modernism. This behind the scenes talk will focus on Wille’s images of the works by groundbreaking architects Robin Boyd, Peter McIntyre, Kevin Borland, and John and Phyllis Murphy.

Meet at the Peter Wille: Out driving exhibition in the South Rotunda. Enter via Russell Street (Accessible entry is Entry 5, La Trobe Street, near the corner of Russell Street)
