With a history spanning over 3000 years, concrete was first used by Egyptians in the building of the pyramids. It is hard to imagine a world without concrete. A material so ubiquitous we rarely take the opportunity to consider its impact on our lives and its role in the development of modern societies.

The exhibition includes 21 artists, designers and architects from across Australia and brings together products, projects and works of art that reflect many of the current preoccupations with concrete within contemporary art, design and architecture in Australia. Curated by JamFactory’s Margaret Hancock Davis (Senior Curator) and Brian Parkes (CEO).

Access: This exhibition has a clear path of travel throughout the venue with an accessible toilet. A full gallery Access statement is available to download from the ADC website.
