OBJECT FUTURE II – FUTURE OF AUSTRALIAN DESIGN

OBJECT FUTURE II is the second in a series of independently organised and curated design exhibitions showcasing work by emerging Australian based designers that survey the latest design practice in Australia.

First discussed as a reaction to the lack of inclusive design exhibitions across Melbourne, OBJECT FUTURE is the latest platform for emerging and established designers to exhibit ideas-based design.

Co-curated by Dale Hardiman and Suzannah Henty, OBJECT FUTURE looks at the political, philosophical and aesthetic characteristics of Australian design and rallies for its inclusion in the contemporary art milieu.

OBJECT FUTURE presents fine art, design and architecture interdependently and emphasises the importance of design-reception in academic contexts.
