Queenslandâ€™s top 20 designers feature in this new exhibition in Logan.
February 23rd, 2009
The Logan Art Gallery is currently exhibiting the best of Queensland design in Mod Squad: Contemporary Design + Objects – presenting the work of 20 of the state’s top designers, including Ari Athans, Jason Bird, Bruce Carrick, Matt Dwyer, Marc Harrison, Jill Kinnear, Lasse Kinnunen, Alexander Lotersztain, Paul Morris, Luis Nheu, David Shaw, Elizabeth Shaw and Brian Steendÿk.
The exhibition acknowledges and celebrates the rise of design in the public sphere, by displaying the work of Queensland designers who have “influenced, impacted and are inspiring contemporary design in Australia”.
The touring Mod Squad exhibition showcases the innovation and creativity so indicative of Queensland design, through product, furniture, lighting jewellery and textile designs.
Mod Squad is also displaying the best of Queensland’s emerging designers with work from Nicole Lacey, Jenni Baxter Surya Graf and Bjorn Rust.
“These edgy and engaging designers bring a freshness to the exhibition and provide an insight into the work of those who are beginning to inspire the direction of contemporary Australian design,” say the organisers.
The exhibitions will also examine the crossover between art and design – so often encountered in Queensland – with works from Craig Flood, Barbara Heath and Susan Lincoln.
Showing now until 14 March at the Logan Art Gallery, Mod Squad has already received a lot of attention. The exhibition will next travel to the Cairns Regional Gallery and Redcliffe City Gallery. If you’re in the area, it would pay to get along.
