Future Exhibitions


Glass X DesignPrint

12 November 2014 to 25 January 2015

Curator: Magda Keaney

Since ancient times glass has been used for functional purposes to create products used as both solutions to practical problems as well as exquisite technical and aesthetic objects. In our contemporary world the potential for innovation and creativity through the synergy of glass and design is an exciting and dynamic direction for practitioners from both fields that could include paradigm shifting new approaches to architecture, science, adornment and the boundaries of form and function in everyday life.

With this in mind we have asked designers and glass artists to work in pairs joining intellect and skills to collaboratively produce a new product or suite of works. The brief will be open with the single practical direction given to keep their work small in physical scale. This cross disciplinary exhibition will include both established and emerging designers and glass artists from across Australia. Artists include;

Blanche Tilden X Erin Hinton

Cobi Cockburn X Rob Foster

George Agius X Jason Bird

Kristel Britcher X Gilbert Riedelbauch

Kumiko Nakajima X John Quan

Lisa Cahill X Chris Hardy

Ruth Allen X Dan Lorrimer/Mitchell Brooks

Nadège Desgenétez X Tom Skeehan

Exhibition Opening: Thursday, 20 November at 6pm
Gallery Floor Talk: Saturday 22 November at 2pm
