Peter Sheridan in Conversation with Josh Zepps — "Sydney Art Deco"
Sydney Art Deco explores the impact of the Art Deco style on the landscape and life of Sydney during the 1930s and 1940s. Using contemporary and archival photos the book covers the whole gamut of moderne, functionalist and streamlined styling in the architecture of Sydney during the 1930s and 1940s.
Examples of Art Deco architecture can be found in many areas of Australia, but the largest concentration is in Potts Point and Elizabeth Bay.
In conversation with Australian media personality, political satirist, and television presenter Josh Zepps, respected historian, lecturer, and author Peter Sheridan will discuss art deco's impact on the lifestyle of Sydneysiders.
Join Peter for a glass of wine and book signing at the end of the talk.
