Modern Beloved explores artist Rosi Griffin’s ongoing interest in the Gold Coast’s architectural history.

The body of work celebrates iconic modernist homes and the beauty of our everyday built environment in an attempt to document part of our heritage and cultivate an appreciation of our history.

“We are experiencing a revival and renewed appreciation of our mid-century history, yet most of these buildings are underrepresented on heritage registers, still vulnerable and at risk of disappearing, old enough to be unstylish but not old enough to be worth preserving.”

A Tweed Regional Gallery initiative. An outcome of the Community Access Exhibitions Program.
