Richly illustrated and beautifully designed, Modern Times: The Untold Story of Modernism in Australia reveals how modernism transformed all aspects of Australian culture across five tumultuous decades from 1917 to 1967. The influence of modernism was wide reaching. Modern Times looks at all things modern and as diverse as art, advertising, photography, film, fashion, the body, architecture, interiors, recreational sites such as the new swimming pools and fountains, milk bars and auto culture. Modernism embodied the utopian possibilities of the 20th century. It transformed Australian cities into complex metropolises and offered access to new cosmopolitan cultures. This is the first time that such diverse material has been brought together in one volume. With stories from more than 20 authors and more than 300 images, many of them never before published, Modern Times will be a revelation!NSW, 2001. Staff Manual: Australia Exhibit Organisation.
