High Tea - Old to new luxury: Gilded age to experience culture - afternoon

05 July 2022 - 05 July 2022 12.30pm - 3.00pm
Enjoy a sumptuous champagne high tea in the newly refurbished Members Lounge, plus hear from Peter McNeil as he presents a lecture exploring luxury in a myriad of forms from the Hollywood stars to the late Queen Mother, and everything in between.

Peter McNeil, Distinguished Professor and award-winning design historian at the University of Technology Sydney, will explore luxury and its historic connection with sin, to contemporary society with luxury permeating all aspects of our lives. Explore the world of luxury brands, to the cult of privacy, and ‘experience’ culture. Can luxury transcend intrinsic value? How does it relate to art and design?

This lecture will be presented in the Domain Theatre at 12.30pm-1.30pm, followed by the High tea at 2pm in the Members Lounge.
