Herbert Flugelman archive
Herbert ‘Bert’ Flugelman (1923–2013) is best known for his large-scale works of simplified geometric forms in stainless steel. He was involved in running the Tin Sheds workshop at the University of Sydney and was an influential teacher of sculpture for three decades.
Flugelman’s personal records are now dispersed among a number of public institutions. The Herbert Flugelman archive at the Art Gallery of NSW was assembled by the artist’s family after his death. The core of this archive are objects from performances and happenings that Flugelman organised, along with his slide collection. The selection reproduced online includes images of the artist and some of his works.
