Tim Ross on Design Nation

Duration: 1 hour

Tim Ross returns to the Powerhouse in April after his sold-out Sydney Design Festival shows.

To accompany his new exhibition Design Nation, comedian and self-proclaimed design nerd Tim Ross presents an evening where he examines the fascinating stories of some of our invisible icons of Australian design. You will never look at a stackhat in the same way again!

Tim’s inventive take on architecture and design has seen him win an AWGIE award for his ABC TV series Streets of Your Town and a National Trust Award for his acclaimed live show Man About the House. In 2016 he was asked to speak at the opening of the London Design Museum, and 2018 saw his Design Nation exhibition open at the Powerhouse Museum.
