Sydney Design 08

28 Jun

Australia’s longest-running design festival Sydney Design 08 (SD08) returns from 8 to 24 August.

Find out what design means to you through a vibrant 17-day program of exhibitions and events at the Powerhouse Museum and satellite venues all over Sydney.

Now in its 12th year, Sydney Design celebrates excellence in home-grown and international design backed by an extensive program including international speakers, exhibitions, tours, markets, films and other special events.

The annual festival aims to engage and inspire audiences, while exploring the varied forms of design from architecture to digital design and interior to industrial design.

Highlights in this year’s program include a series of special night openings at the Powerhouse to ignite the spirit of modernism and complement the exhibition Modern times: the untold story of modernism in Australia.

Modern times is the first ever exhibition to explore the movement that transformed Australian culture during the early 20th century.

Revealing many untold stories across five tumultuous decades from 1917 – 1967, the exhibition will explore Modernism’s influence on Australian architecture, design, visual arts and popular culture through objects, artworks, films and interactives.
