Georgia Birks + Troy Casey: Visual Languages
26 October 2023
At a time when architecture is embracing designing for and with Country, there’s potential for new messages to be articulated through the built environment. What will they be?
In this conversation, architects Georgia Birks (Birpai, Dunghutti, Kamilaroi) and Troy Casey (Kamilaroi) discuss how collaborations between artists and architects can change the visual language of Australian architecture.
The IMA strongly encourages mask-wearing onsite in the galleries and for events to keep our community safe. If you are displaying symptoms of COVID-19 or are feeling unwell, please stay home.

The gallery entrance is on the ground floor of the Judith Wright Arts Centre, on Berwick Street. There is wheelchair access and an accessible toilet with baby changing facilities also located on the ground floor, and we welcome guide and support dogs.
