Tin Sheds Gallery is proud to announce it will be showcasing a generous collection of works by the late Irish-Australian architect, Raymond McGrath. This exhibition is the first of its kind in Australia. The collection of works in Modern Master are on loan from the Irish Architectural Archive, where the works were first exhibited in a major retrospective held in 2013. In addition to IAA's collection, Tin Sheds Gallery will be loaning McGrath works from Josef Lebovic Gallery, Sydney; a complimentary expansion to the breadth of work on display.
The exhibition highlights McGrath’s illustrious career, giving a visual narrative to several of his seminal architectural works. Modern Master is not only a great opportunity to pay homage to McGrath as an architect in his own right, but to also celebrate an architect whose first education in architecture started here, at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Sydney. McGrath graduated in 1926 with first-class honours, and the University Medal for the most distinguished student.
