Painting Toward Architecture is a touring exhibition examining the work of Australia’s most prominent twentieth century architect, Harry Seidler. 

The exhibition features a comprehensive survey of Seidler's projects, including residential, commercial, and civic works realized in Australia, Austria, France, Israel, Italy, Mexico, and Hong Kong. Many of these were the product of his long-lasting creative collaborations with progressive architectural visionaries such as Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer, and Pier Luigi Nervi. Seidler is also noted for his collaborations with famed twentieth century artists, including Josef Albers, Alexander Calder, Sol LeWitt, and Frank Stella, also on view in the exhibition. 

Painting Toward Architecture is curated by Vladimir Belogolovsky and developed by New York-based Curatorial Project Inc. in collaboration with Penelope Seidler. Belogolovsky has produced over fifty exhibitions, is a contributing writer for ArchDaily, and has lectured at universities and museums in more than thirty countries.
