Object: Australian Design Centre Takes Part in Art Month


Art Month Sydney 2014 takes place from 1 March to 23 March. Celebrate the visual arts and design by visiting AAA partner Object: Australian Design Centre. Their exhibition New Weave: Contemporary Approaches To The Traditions of Weaving pushes the boundaries of the woven form and is open until the 29 March.

An exhibition of the handmade, features artists and designers re-appropriating traditional weaving techniques, using different materials to create intricate and striking wearables. objects and installations. From the sculptural fibre vessels of Lorraine Connelly-Northey to Jenni Kemarre Martiniello's work in glass, to other works in wood, textiles and paper, weaving will leap off the loom and into the future.

Curated by guest curator Lisa Cahill (who co-curated the Australian component of the Triennale of Craft in Kanazawa, Japan for Object) and Object's own Carrie Mulford, New Weave explores the common language of weaving, showing how it can be used to create new forms by hand that are produced in different ways using collaboration, technology and methods of manufacturing.

The exhibition features the work of: Alana Clifton-Cunningham, Lorraine Connelly-Northey, Edward Linacre, Jenni Kemarre Martiniello, Rachel Park and from courtesy of the Artist, Pennie Jagiello and Bin Dixon Ward.
