MASTERCLASS - John Gollings teaches architectural photography: $220


This photographic architectural exhibition of John Gollings' works takes a different perspective on this year's festival theme by asking: How New is Not Now? 

Artist statement:

There is the architecture of form, the architecture of detail and decoration on a prosaic base and sometimes a combination.

All can give pleasure but form is the most important definition of architecture. And no version is of much worth if it self-destructs. Herein is the paradox, what is new is gratuitous shape making with fragile materials like glass, metal and concrete, a lifespan determined by economics and an aesthetic of immediate gratification rather than timeless verity.

This exhibition showcases some of the world’s most exciting ancient buildings created using nothing but brick, stone and timber where the new is NOT now!

– John Gollings.

Accompanying the exhibition on 20 March will be a half-day masterclass, Shooting Architecture with Gollings. Places for the masterclass will be extremely limited.
