The Ideal Home

Sat 1st December, 2018 – Sun 24th March, 2019
Penrith Regional Gallery
86 River Road, Emu Plains
The story of the 20th-century Australian home told through its objects, furniture and classic design.

This joint project between Penrith Regional Gallery and the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences explores the plethora of experiences that constitute Australian home life. From the post-war affluence that saw housing become an increasingly commodified reflection of wealth and style, to the social and economic issues that are associated with Australian home life today.

This exhibition takes 70 furniture, design and household objects from the MAAS collection and presents them alongside a number of new commissions that reflect what the “ideal” Australian home is today, and asks wether or not that even exists.

The Ideal Home is on at Penrith Regional Gallery until March 24, 2019.
