More About Expanded Architecture:
In 2010 was Sydney’s first international Architectural Film Festival and panel discussion at Performance Space, Clubhouse CarriageWorks, Sydney. It brought together the films from over 40 local and international artists and architects, concentrating on the intersections of avant-garde film, expanded cinema and architecture. In 2011, Expanded Architecture was again part of the Sydney Architecture Festival, but this time its focus expanded beyond the screen, to an engagement with a specific site, that of the cavernous and evocative CarriageWorks foyer space. The exciting one night only event showcased the moving image projection installation works of collaborative projects between artists and architects. The selected projects demonstrated a rich variety of approaches to exploring the building’s social and material history, its spatial and experiential qualities, its visible and invisible fluxes and flows. In 2013 Expanded Architecture returns offering month long artist residencies in a Rocks Pop Up space, culminating in an Exhibition and Symposium, with the theme Reverse Projections. Expanded Architecture in 2013 is once again as part of Sydney Architecture Festival.
