Museum of Sydney

It falls to us to rewrite the future … Wingara’ba’miya (you will understand or foretell) is an exhibition of student work from a UTS Masters of Architecture Design Studio. Led by First Nations practitioners Shannon Foster and Jo Kinniburgh, students confront the unfeasible patriarchal, colonial, heteronormative, able bodied ‘business-as-usual’ practice of architecture. Instead, we foretell alternate spatial futures, in which architects challenge practices of erasure and marginalisation.

The exhibition will be on display at the Museum of Sydney across the Sydney Open weekend, Saturday 2 & Sunday 3 November.
