Tin Sheds Gallery Sydney, Australia
Lena Obergfell from the Wasteland Twinning Network Sydney will be presenting at the Third Landscape Forum.
Concurrently to The Third Landscape exhibition (October 18 – November 17) at Tin Sheds Gallery, a public program will encourage participatory discussion around industrial heritage, urban planning and sustainability. This will be an opportunity for the audience to engage with local problems and discuss future directions and opportunities. Taking the exhibition themes as a starting point it aims to explore new understandings of heritage and ruin and will examine the transformative possibilities for regenerating seemingly negative landscapes of the forgotten and the blighted.
The forum will focus on the changing face of Sydney’s watery edges, from the warehouses and industrial spaces of the working harbour to new urban planning developments.
Speakers include Kate Clark (Historic Houses Trust), Blair French (Artspace), Richard Goodwin (artist/architect), Helen Armstrong (landscape architect), Tom Rivard (Lean Productions), Robert Gasparini (Design 5), Alex Ritchie (E-2), Peter Nelson (artist), Lena Obergfell (artist – Wasteland Twinning) and Joni Taylor (curator).
