Praising Process

This new exhibition at the University of Sydney explores the processes of professionals from technicians to architects and writers.

Praising Process


March 26th, 2009

A new exhibition at the University of Syndey’s Tin Sheds Gallery this month will explore the processes behind art, architecture, design, planning and writing.

In Praise of Process will present drawings, paintings, models (both digital and physical) and literature by a number of creative minds – delving into the “often invisible modes of production and processes.”

“It seeks not to compare processes, but to celebrate artefacts containing evidence of the thoughts that reside in the authors’ mind,” says Timothy Osborne – Exhibition Co-ordinator.

The exhibiting individuals are all alumni of the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning at the University. Ranging from artists to technicians and planners, together they help to build a lot of our cultural and physical environments.

“The result of the human creative processes – that which is seen in the built environment, the buildings, the spaces and the objects; furniture, art and literature – all have embryonic beginnings in the mind of the author, yet these beginnings are often invisible in the finished work,” Osborne says.

In Praise of Process will be opened by the Hon. Bob Carr on 27 March and will run until 18 April 2009 at the Tin Sheds Gallery.
