Slide Night: Architectural Critic Abroad

Thu September 1st @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$25.00 – $35.00

Presented by Kerry Landman and Jonathan Russell from the RBF Research and Collections Team

From his first European tour in 1950 to his final trip to America and London in 1971, Boyd was a prolific and keen-sighted documentarian. From Massawa to Marseille, from Stockholm to Singapore, we will explore scenes that caught Boyd’s eye – including his visits to the cutting edge of modernist architecture around the world.

Since 2014, the Walsh Street Archive has been catalogued, researched, digitised, and conserved by a team of Robin Boyd Foundation volunteers. It contains over 4000 items: the readily visible library, furniture and artwork collection alongside hidden treasures including manuscripts, correspondence, slides, films, architectural drawings, and newspaper clippings. In celebration of the launch of the Walsh Street Archive online through Victorian Collections, our slide nights offer a rich insight into the Archive’s 1500+ slides taken by Boyd.
