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.
July 4th, 2014
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.
OBJECT FUTURE II, in its second year running, surveys a combination of already marketed products and fine one-off pieces from Naasicaa Larsen, Inkster Maken, Mo-En Design, James Devery, Hamish Munro, Tim Wallace, Jonathan Ben-Tovim, Chris Goff, Seaton McKeon, Nikolai Kotlarczyk, Alison Jackson, Adam Raphael Markovic, Smile Makers, Guy Keulemans, Georgia Hutchison, Robert Sowter, Henty and Luca Luna..
OBJECT FUTURE II runs through July 11 at Allpress Studio
